We have been busy in the garden, cutting back the hydrangas...I plunked them all in a wicker basket to enjoy inside. My dad grew these for me from cuttings, and with all the rain we've had this year, the flowers were enormous! We are working on creating another 'garden room'. I think I have told you before that we built our house about 10 years ago now, so the garden has been a work in progress...on my wish list is some more beautiful paving, a frog pond, and lots of lovely blooms (I can't plant roses in my back garden because the possums like to eat them, but for some reason they leave them alone out the front - go figure...)
It is autumn time here in Australia, and my camellias have begun to flower...so I picked a few to float in my favourite silver bowl. I created a little vignette to enjoy in the hallway each time I walk past.
I bought the little fairy picture on a girls' weekend in Sydney a few years back...I fell in love with it at the Paddington Market and just knew she was coming home with me...I love the chippy frame.
I hope that everyone had a wonderful Easter...we snuck down to the little house at the beach, where we enjoyed a long weekend with friends...
Delicious autumn. My very soul is wedded to it, and if I were a bird I would fly about the earth seeking successive autumns - George Eliot
