It’s a spring thing
It has been a while between posts, I know….sorry! I hunkered down for the winter – my first winter in a seriously cold city, I survived mostly intact and am now sitting here in warmer spring weather in a t-shirt, gazing at the magnificent Wisteria blooms outside my window. The seasons have changed here in Australia, in a most dramatic fashion, an explosion of scent and colour, as evidenced in the below photos from my garden. I have been focusing on my graphic design studies (you’re never too old to learn new tricks, as they say), and I came to the realisation today that I have been neglecting my blog and my few but loyal readers. A warm welcome to all new visitors, especially to those of you from Germany as my book recently graced your shelves. I was thrilled to get my mitts on a copy, so great to see my words and projects translated.
With the new season comes new ideas, craft projects on the boil and ideas simmering away. In a spring clean of my craft cupboards, I unearthed some unfinished projects and craft supplies that had been tucked away in boxes, in storage between houses and cities. Discovering these old gems gave me a spring in my step, my only dilemma now is which to start first. But first I’ll share some of the purple and pink delights from my garden…enjoy!
The Lavender I chopped back in autumn has sprung back to life, I’m so glad I didn’t kill it!
A bunch of borage from a neighbours garden. We have the most wonderful and kind neighbours that share chit-chats and plants cuttings over back fences. I look forward to the day when my vegetable garden produces enough for me to give in return.
