Afternoon, how are you all?
As you can see it's a sunny day here and the temp. is forecast to climb into the mid thirties this week......
The last couple of weeks haven't been typical February weather at all...quite cool in fact.
No complaints from me as it's easier living when there's no heat or humidity but the vegie garden needs some heat to do it's thing.....
Yes, you've guessed it, I plugged the machine in this morning, snipped some of that lovely woollen fabric I was gifted recently and made another 'Bgurk" .
Little Red Hen and her chicky.....
She's one proud Mamma, so it's best if you keep your distance as she's very protective of her little one.....
She's not going to let that little chicky out of her sight
I thought we would head outside for some photos as it's such a beautiful day and I've been told my Vitamin D level is a little on the low side,so it's a good opportunity to soak up some rays.
I was a little surprised to hear this news but mulling it over it all adds up.......
I'm not a Summer person so will head for the nearest patch of shade when outside to avoid getting sunburnt and stay cool.
I now spend more time indoors sewing than I do outdoors gardening, that's probably the biggest change in lifestyle.
Anyhoo, time to get outside a little more and enjoy the weather before it heats up too much.
Last Friday the weather decided to tease us with some stormy clouds and the threat of a thunderstorm.
The garden was looking for some rain and I thought here we go.....but no it wasn't to be and someone else got a nice drop of rain.
Beautiful, atmospheric clouds♡
Beauty waiting to unfurl.....
Can you see them?
One evening last week after a storm we had this amazing cloud formation.
It was if someone had waved a paintbrush across the sky picking out a cloud here and there to colour........
The trees have started to change colour, first the Pistachios and then the Maples along the driveway.
It feels as if we haven't had much Summer really and Autumn is knocking on the door.
You know I'm not going to complain about it......the last of the Winter wood supply has been stacked away in the shed ....thankyou guys.....so we're ready, but surely there's still some heat to come......
The beautiful White Belladonna Lillies are about to burst into bloom...
The bulbs look sad most of the year then it seems suddenly a little green shoot appears.
A day or two later it's almost 10 inches tall and then the flowers start peeping out of their little green covering........
Next post I'll show you the ugly duckling to swan transformation.
Our Nashis and apples are ready and providing lovely, fresh fruit to snack on.
They're not huge maybe half a dozen bites and they're gone.
Perfect size for filling pockets and munching on as we go for an evening walk......
So what has the week got in store?
More time outside me thinks, shall have a crochet hook in one hand and a gardening fork in the other, just to keep things interesting.
Some more Mamma chooks and chicks, a little more tweaking needed I feel.
If you want to check out some other chickens head over to visit Mimilove.
Karen has just finished a fab commission.....a combination of painting and stitchy creativity which will make you smile
Back into the working week, hope all is well in your little corner of the globe.
Thanks for taking time out to visit and say 'hi', it's always nice to hear from you.
