Some Quilting and some Snoozing

 While Angus has been settling in and finding his feet with the "big cats" . . .
 I've made a baby quilt!


 In amongst admiring all the beautiful Autumn Glory

Everything Old is New Again

 These were my Grandparents chairs - passed through the family and now resting with me.  I'm so happy to have them.  Mum organised to get them recovered for me, and I am thrilled with how they have come up.

This is my Nellie
 . . . slowly getting used to Angus, who is so active and lively.


 I think he loves it out in the garden just as much as I do!

So much to explore and to do

Music Boy

 Master Flowergarden had a birthday and turned 15
He is a Music Buff so I "tried" to make a Guitar Cake.
 And a week or so ago, Mum and I went with some friends to the Garden Show in Melbourne.  It was wonderful for a flower lover like me!




 I must plant those tulip bulbs I bought - they are still in the crisper!

For the LOVE of Gardening

 I just LOVE being a Gardener . . .
 There is ALWAYS something to look forward to, and every season sneaks into my heart and becomes my favourite.
 Autumn has arrived in Ballarat, and it's my all time favourite (for the moment).
 The vibrant colours are everywhere and I might just be a little bit obsessed with my "garden curtains" outside my back door.  With the morning sun shining through them, they are a BRILLIANT colour and a joy to behold.
 I used to have to collect the Autumn leaves from town when I first moved here, but now I have Autumn leaves of my very own - oh bliss!

 And amongst it all, there are still plenty of flowers.  The roses are rising to their Autumn Flush and the Salvias are full of flowers.
 Lots of exciting things every day in my garden.  So happy to be on School Holidays so I can enjoy it everyday.

Beautiful Begonias

 On Saturday I went for a lovely walk through our local Botanical Gardens with my mum.
 We recently had a Begonia Festival and the display was just magnificent.
 Everywhere we looked in the hot house was just amazing.
 We kept saying to each other "look at this one! . . . look at this one!"



 The Prime Minister Walk in the Gardens is also interesting.

It was a lovely way to spend a Saturday afternoon
