Tomorrow is Remembrance Day in Australia -
I like to remember my grandfather, an Australian far from home in the snowy fields of Flanders back in the First World War.
I took these pictures when we visited in 2009.
Lest we forget
See those few blossoms on the top of our Jacaranda tree?
We thought the day would never come, but....
our five year old tree has finally decided to bloom!
Other trees have been covered in purple for weeks, but just when we had given up on our tree for 2015, I looked up and there they were - tiny little buds, about to burst forth.
Like proud new parents, we will probably take pictures of every new development....Heaven help us!
The Blue Sapphire has been giving a good example..
Roses are popping out on a daily basis...
along with the Agapanthus.
There have been storms.
Lots of Summer Storms with ear-splitting thunder and scary flashes of lightning.
I went for a walk as the sun re-emerged the other afternoon.
The sky had quite a glow.
In other lovely news this week, the Sewing Ladies celebrated the Spring Racing Season in Australia with a flourish.
Champagne? Of course...
And Little Aussie has been to visit.
He is now into complex cardboard constructions..
This is a tool shed, with his plastic tools taped to the inside walls.
He decided on free-form murals for the external decoration:
Hope your week is full of rainbows.
