Just a little of what has been happening in our neck of the woods.
I made a bag from one of hubby work shirts. He was going to throw out his old shirts but I had this bright idea to make shopping bags. This particular one is a practice run and I have about ten more to sew up...next time I will make sure the two pockets line up! I thought the pockets might come in handy for storing things like homemade mesh veggie bags.
I fell in love with these orchids when I saw them the other day...I know, I know, they weren't in my budget, but they are so pretty right? This one is loving its position by the big dining room window.
This Jerusalem artichoke flower is so bright and cheery. It wont be long and I will be able to harvest the bulbs. Have you tried Jerusalem artichokes? I believe you have to be careful as they can make you go to the toilet often lol!
Mum has kept all the plants I have given her over the years for Mothers day. I have now taken some cuttings for my front garden.
Some of them are pretty spectacular.
Little bee...always a great sight to see.
Mum's roses continue to flower, which is fairly unusual for this time of year.
This may not be of interest to anyone, but the two of us have been eating extremely healthy lately. Hubby has cholesterol issues so he has joined me on the vegan diet to see if that will lower his numbers naturally. He doesn't want to take medication, so there isn't really any option but to cut animal products from his diet. He will get tested again next month.
Vegan Anzac biscuits...we still get to enjoy the simple things.
This windmill gift is from my Mum and Dad. There is an awesome bloke that happens to be their neighbour, and his hobby/job is making these type of things from a laser cutter machine (I think that is what its called). He has been creating a lot of bigger items to put around their little town, and they look spectacular when driving through.
I actually attempted a video tour of our little place today. But the clip appears to be too big (ten minutes) for putting on this blog, so I may have to look at posting on you tube.
Well I think that is about all for now. Can you believe it is May already? Actually we are over half way through May! WOW this year is flying by! It will be Christmas before I know it.
See you soon,
