Hello my lovelies!

Sorry I haven't posted for a couple of weeks, CFS caught up with me for a few weeks and I had to conserve energy. Being technically challenged as I am, I wasn't able to solve the download problem I was having with my old camera, that is now my daughters, and so the "tea party" photos I was hoping to bring you have now flown across the seas with her again. Fortunately with skype and other modern conveniences I hope to bring some of them to you soon. In the meantime a few photos about what I've been up to.

A couple of things I rescued from our "annual neighbourhood clean-up". People put out their unwanted things near the road, those who like things for free, to recycle, restore, re-purpose 'collect' things and about 2 weeks later the 'local council' arranges collection and crushes things in the back of the truck and takes it to 'landfill'.
Spring 'snaps' around my garden- just love bringing buches of Freesias, Azaleas and the odd rose indoors too.
The glorious chorus of bush birds, darting between the trees, the racous schreeching of Sulphur-crested Cockatoos as they prune the trees and litter the lawn with these 'prunings'.

The blue bird is not real, but encourages the Rosellas (see red and blue below) to come and feed on the grass seeds. This is in a friends garden, snapped through her window.

And I leave you with a kitchen I've been daydreaming about- love the glass fronted doors- they would match my french doors that open onto the back verandah. Now I'm off to blog-hop a little!
