In 4 weeks my different families will be arriving here for Christmas and it just feels like they were here Christmas 2017!!!!
Last week flew in and out so fast I can not remember what I did and did not do LOL I did work on my centre of The Secret Garden by Esther Aliu but not much else other than mending.
All leaves and petals appliqué down now the enjoyment of working on the flowers.
My borderie perse flowers finished I love doing the embroidery on them. Edges all buttonhole stitched and rest is done with stemstitch one of my favourite stitches.
I have placed the same flowers beside the finished flowers so you can see the difference after pencil painting and thread painting them!!!
Have added my next 3 flowers and have started to thread paint the saffron flower.
In the garden this week and this morning.
This is a area I have spent many many hrs cleaning up ready for the wet season that starts in Dec. yes that is a surfboard seatLOL.
My young raintree I just love her and her roots she is around 30feet tall.
A large helliconia in full flower which will last month and months then the plant will die.
A stunning helliconia flower that the honey birds love
Every day since it start3d to flower 10 years ago my water Lilly gives me a new flower each day
My herb garden this morning it is so lovely to be able to just pick fresh herbs each day.
Our sunrises around 5.15am have been so beautiful this week.
What I woke up to this morning we had heavy rain in the night and the trees are so great full for it, I will not have to water the garden for a week or too now.
I remember my art teacher telling me when I was about 12 that there were more greens in the trees than we could count, looking down on to these trees on Saturday morning with the sun hitting som3 of the I was spell bound by all those different greens? 100s and 100s of them.
Every year for the last 20 years this bulb sends up these beautiful round red ball flowers that never cease to mazy me, this one is 1/2 open the centre is still to open.
A insect chewed through the stem of this one so I have the joy of it on my kitchen window sill.
This lovely piece of art was given to me on Sunday by a local artist, it is a very early pastel drawing of hers and I fell in love with the colours it is of the Kimberley’s in WA and every time I walk past it I’m stopped by it.
Just spotted in my pond, a local striped marsh frog hatching of eggs. Below in the close up photo you can see the tiny babies just growing
Will keep you posted on their development this is a first for us.
Well not much sewing but lots of gardening done this week. Off to link with Esther now. Thank you for stopping by to say hello. Cheers Glenda
