Hello, Spring

We're busy growing a few things round here (other than various small people)…






I had a substantial vegie garden in Brisbane that my dear freind Catriona helped me dig out and that I was terribly proud of. 

I planted a very hearty selection of vegies which thrived for about a month and I felt generations of farmer genes zinging in my bones as I peered and inspected and watered and fertilised. 

Then on one warm night some small hungry marsupial ate the lot. The whole damn garden. Hope he had a rotten tummyache. All those new sweet vegies. Wee bugger. 

I was so disheartened and spring turns into a burning hot summer very quickly in Queensland; I didn't start again and by New Year we were heading back to Sydney.

Let's see what hardcore wee furries we have around here, shall we? 

In other news, I've pretty much fallen off the wagon with my Kids Clothes Week Challenge. I've finished two things and will save up a full report for the end of the weekend. I'm hoping to make up some time tomorrow, Friday, if Tilly naps, and then might sneak in a bit of sewing over the weekend!

This skirt, below, I was very happy with though! More later…

As we begin the long descent into winter here and I’m getting my bulbs ready for spring and bringing in my veg I shall look forward to watching things grow on your blog to remind me that it all comes back round in a few months 🙂

While it’s beautiful fall around here, plants are going away and leaves are sadly falling down scattering my lawn with brown, so it’s nice to see such bright green growing…I love those colors.

PS Happy Sewing!

Love that skirt. I think completing two sewing projects is amazing especially with 3 young children! We have all sorts of mischievous little critters that love to visit and they have a certain fondness for vegetable gardens, possums, fox’s…sigh. Actually the fox isn’t the problem for us he is too distracted trying to conjure up ways to break into our neighbour’s chicken coup.

I’ve just spent the morning tackling the immense about of weeds we have in our veggie garden. Still a while till it will be warm enough to plant out here but I have grand plans!!

I love spring *almost* as much as I love fall! However, your spring days look very much like my fall days! Lots of gardening around here as we enter our best growing season – the winter! Summers are so hot here, I’m afraid I lack lots of summer gardening talent. I do hope those marsupials mind their manners this year and nibble in moderation! And which marsupials are we speaking of?

Yes, the world is awesome and so is blogland – to put us all in touch with each other’s daily lives!

Have a great spring weekend!

only thing that is growing in my herb garden so far is mint – the chooks nibbled the tops of the rest through the wire cunningly placed over the top to deter them. My jacaranda is just about to explode purple – wonder how your Brisbane one is going?
