Snippets of June

June has come and gone for another year. 
Time is passing by very quickly...I thought it was suppose to slow down as you get older J

Anyway I have been snapping away with the camera, so here are some mixed, not in any order pics from the month of June...

Lovely calm days with gorgeous sunsets...


Some flowers for me, from hubby, just because...
Sunflowers are a favourite of mine J


 Afternoon shadows that catch my eye...


Noisy visitors dropped in...


Australian natives are in flower.


The bees are delighted and busy J 






Unusual patterns...




 More pretty flowers...




There are plenty of Quandongs on the trees,
we have to be patient with these as they only fruit every second year...


 Made my first pumpkin pie for dessert from our home grown pumpkins J


This is such a tasty pie.

 

Homemade crumpets, 
they take a bit of time to prepare, but so worth it J


Homemade mini pizzas,
using one cup SR flour, one cup Greek yogurt for the base.


Sunrises are spectacular as usual...





I love a good bargain, 
and we were lucky enough to find $238.82 worth of meat on special for just $134.41. I divided this into thirty three standard size meals and of course there will be leftovers.


 We have a couple of young bunnies living in our yard, and they have left their calling card. So far I have not been able to snap a photo of them, they are way too quick to run away...


We had some rain.
A nice big downpour...


The tanks are full!


I dropped by the op shop, and was pleased to find a single vintage sheet with the pillowcase and two other vintage pillowcases and a pretty tablecloth. Also found an old cookbook with lots of naughty recipes!


I finally finished another crochet blanket...



The shed has been started, we have one post in lol!


I feel like I am playing catch up this year on my blog, hopefully I can get back on track.  Having slow internet is a pain as it takes so long to download photos.

Take care where ever you are,
