Hi, I found this book for kids, which just happens to feature our own lorikeets and cockatoos,
along with other native Australian birds and animals.
Perfect to introduce the Petite Garcon to our place ... very soon.
On my daily walk I found another Australian icon.
The Golden Wattle - blooms in winter and smells divine.
Our Australian National Floral Emblem.
And here is the young man himself, resplendant in the second pair of PJ's I sent off to him in Canada.
Note his mother also plants pink petunias.
Like mother, Like daughter, as they say.
The sorting of the Old Family Home continues.
This rug belonged to my mother, and came up beautifully in the wash.
As is well-known, I cannot resist a bird of any kind.
Guess who was first hand up for a little ducky oil painting.
With hints of orange ...
Still trying to give up orange.
Gratuitous sighting of Belgian Royal wearing touches of OJ.
Our Browallia bush has burst into early Spring blossom.
It would be indiscreet to mention colour.
Very little sewing has been happening round here of late. However, having found this sateen at Spotlight,
a pair of floral pants might appear one of these days. Fingers crossed.
Little Aussie is here for a few days with his Dad,
and they getting right into the Lego,
and the teaset.
As you do.
Have a wonderful weekend.
