Sshhhh........ don't tell !

Each year my club have a christmas luncheon on the last saturday in November. Its a bring and share luncheon and much merriment is had. Santa also visits us and brings along his sack of goodies ( all handmade by each member). Each gift is dated with the year and this year I decided to make a table ornament instead of one for the tree. I've called it, "I'll take this one". I have needle felted the snowman , added snow and mica flakes, a rusty sleigh pulled by a flocked deer.
I can't wait to see what everyone has made!

Returning Robins

Last spring, the cape robins built their nest in my wreath I made for my front door.
This spring they returned and two babies are growing rapidly. Here are pictures to show you how they have filled the nest with hardly any room for mum.

These beautiful roses all come from one bush, Double Delight. After cutting the blooms, I was still left with another eight on the bush. I am so excited and happy with my rose bush as it the first time in many years that I have been successful in growing these. The perfume from this beauty is wonderful as well - a real double delight!!

Nature's Glory.

Despite the severe fire that raged through our property this year, nature has a way of dealing with the damage. Trees have started to show new green leaves again, grass has sprung up in bare patches, and wild flowers appear magically once more.
While walking the dogs through our bottom untamed acre I came across some new wild flowers.
These delicate lily-type pale yellow beauties looked so fragile amongst the burnt undergrowth.
I can't wait to see what nature brings each morning on my rounds.
