It’s a season I love to be a part of.

I love all the subtle changes in the weather, the abundance of flowers both wild and home grown whether they be annuals or perennials and I especially love that it is such a wonderful time of the year for picnics, especially here in my part of the world.  

Not that we have been on any picnics yet – this past week has seen the temperature plummet from a very nice 31 degrees early on in the week back down into the low teens, and that came with some very blustery winds and heavy rain – we had 51 ml all up.

Good for the garden though, especially the roses.  I had MY J help me throw out some rose fertiliser prior to the rains so that should them a big boost along.

On my way to the Sewing Group in the Swan Valley where the grape vines are shooting nicely.

I returned to my sewing group this week and it was so lovely to see everyone and what sewing works they had been up to. Gosh they all do such beautiful work – this little unyoung didn’t have anything to show but I promised myself that I will have something next time I go.

My little orchid has five flower stalks this year – up from two last year.

The forecast for next week is for more sun and less rain so that will be a good time for this little ankle clad booted one to make her way back to organising some coffee / lunch catch ups and go on her first picnic for the year. Still trying to choose the destination but I reckon it will end up being somewhere where the spring wildflowers are blooming.

Until next time – “make hay while the sun shines.”

We pulled the pool cover off this morning and half an hour later we went out and found this delightful sight – well clearly the pool needs more salt/chlorine after the rains! My J spent the next half hour walking the little family back down to the dam where they usually reside.
