Turn back the clock a week and we were having quite heavy frosts, followed by beautiful sunny days.
Frost creates wonderful icy outlines on the Violets.
Beautiful, sweet, scented flowers.
Quite a few little posies find their way onto my bedside table before Winters end........
One week later, the temperature is up around 20deg. and gardening outside is definitely a T shirt job.
It's hard to stay inside when the garden is calling and all the jobs you have been ignoring over Winter are still waiting............
I have been busy working in the vegie garden, barrowing loads of manure from the paddock. Preparing beds for vegies and flowers.
I noticed the Rhubarb flowering..........love the combination of green and pink.
You would almost think it's a new strain of cauliflower !
More green and pink in the shrubbery.
This dark pink Camellia is my favourite.
Where did I put my secateurs?
I need to cut some and bring them inside.
When my favourite Camellia is in flower I just have to fill this vase full of them.
It belonged to my mum and I don't really remember her using it when I was a child.
I think it was always full of old keys, hair pins, a few coins and maybe a couple of stamps!!
I love the turquoise with the deep pink.
The little clock on the right, once belonged to my father in law.
I wish I had asked him about it's history ................ beautiful colours and delicate flowers.
"A house with Daffodils in it,
is a house lit up, whether or no
the sun be shining outside."
All this sunny weather has my thoughts turning to Spring and therefore Summer and it's coming out in my crafting.
A sneak peek at a WIP I started this morning.
It had to be Sunflowers, I love them and grow some each Summer.
They're bright and cheery and the bees love them.
Yes, those little brown things are going to be bees ..................
Tigger is enjoying the warm weather too and what would be more fun than a roll in the dirt.
Get covered in grass and leaf litter and head inside leaving a trail behind you............
Thanks Tig, I love you too.
So this is a little bit of what's happening here at Sweet Birdy Love.
You all know how much I love Winter, but the warm temperatures, blue skies and bees buzzing about has my mind racing ahead of me.
I'll just have to slow down and take one day at a time and make sure that when the warm weather arrives I'm ready for it.
Thanks for stopping by and I'm linking to Winter Wednesday over at
Head over there and take a look for some more wonderful Winter posts.
Till next time, take care
