Spring: it's is in the air and with it of course, comes new life. On a corner near where we live is this beautiful foal and it's mum. How could I drive past and not stop to say hello?
Back at home Norman has been feeling frisky.
Not content with his two lady friends in the back yard,
he has been courting this fancy girl who lives next door. She has been popping over for a visit (and to check out what's on the menu at No.42). I don't think she knew she was going to have to deal with a lovestruck Norman. I've been giving him his marching orders..
here he is, trying to act all nonchalant but really he's high tailing it big time.
Spring has brought flowers, roses and blossoms by the bucket load, what a beautiful time of year. My vegie garden is slowly growing, the snow peas are climbing and it's all looking healthy and happy. Today I gave all the plants a little boost of worm farm stew and duck pond poo. Doesn't sound to appetising but the plants are smiling.
Endings: Firstly the sad news that Footscray's Steiner School is being shut down. Charlotte began at this school when it opened in 2001 and we all have such happy memories of her time there. It's a shame for all the families who have invested so much in this amazing school, I really feel for them. I was also sad today to hear the news that an old neighbour of ours from West Footscray days, Sarah Watt, has passed away. An incredibly talented film maker and just a really great person, what a loss.
Waiting: Quietly and patiently for the eggs to hatch. I'm counting the days now, shouldn't be too much longer.
Freddy is pacing, like the expectant father that he is. He has cranked up the daily assault on Daisy, who cops a real bashing from him. He continuously pecks at her and chases her around the garden. I guess he is guarding his girls but it can get a bit intense. Lucky Daisy isn't more aggressive or it might be curtains for Fred.
Watching: the girls get ready for their upcoming dance recital. I love Sunday's purple ballet costume,
and Rosie looks so sweet as a pink flower.
Planning: to make a big pile of bed covers out of the mound of vintage sheets I have stacked up in my sewing space. I'm soaking, washing, ironing them all and then the fun begins! I love Rosie and Sunday's quilts so much I've decided to make more for my shop. Yes, my little shop which has been sadly neglected lately. I hope to pop some bunnies in soon too. Oh boy, so many things to do, and never enough time.
Loving: the weather lately, sunny days and the lushness of Spring.
What's on your mind lately? Hope you have a happy week,
see you soon lovely friends xo
