Happy New Year Everyone

Happy New Year to all my wonderful friends who come to visit with me here on my blog.  We still have 8hrs to go till New Year here, but thought I would get in early.    We are having a very hot over 40 degree celcius here, so we are spending the afternoon inside in the air conditioning which we are very blessed to have.  This morning I began digging out the pond which will be going in where the "rose" garden is.  Hope everyone has had a lovely time during the christmas / new year period................. I'm looking forward to sharing lots with you as we travel into 2011.  May God bless you all abundantly.
Hugs, Sharm

Loving it

Look at this beautiful wall hanging I received in the mail from one of my snail mail pen pals!  Thankyou so very much Lyn, I love it!  Thanks also for the hippeastrum seeds - I'll be sreading them around on the weekend when I get into the garden.  It's needing a bit of attention post all the rain we've been having.............. the weeds just love it! 
I've almost finished the 3 little travel rugs for the grandies - I'm afraid I've cheated somewhat & used fabric panels since I left it all a bit late.  Will take some photos before I wrap them up on Friday to post off to Townsville.  Hope everyone else is getting there with their little bits & pieces for christmas.

Locusts or grasshoppers..... but who can find the grass?

Hmmmmm, I always did wonder what the biblical plague of locusts must have looked like........ well we've had a sample here since Saturday when they arrived.  They are gradually reducing in number as they continue to move along & thankfully we have had a deluge of rain to help move them along before they eat everything.
