A walk around the garden

Spring is here and my garden has come alive. 

With all the rain we have had over the last year everything has grown so big.  I am especially excited about my snow ball tree

the Lilac

and the lemon on my lemonade tree

My Banksia rose that has not flowered in 8 years

The fuchsias have come alive

I wonder if I will have  a bumper crop of roses?  I have just a few bushes

A New Bag

Having three kids means that before I begin anything I need a extra pair of holding hands crossing the road, holding hands walking together in crowded places....etc so having a hand bag really isn't an option.  I have been using a leather back pack...but due the enormous amount of things I need to carry around like: nappies, wipes, tissues, lollipops, shopping bags (envirosaxs...but more on that later), wallets, phones and poor back pack died..the straps all split away at the seams ripping the time for a more utilitarian and heavy duty bag.....

Don't you love it...I fell in love with the fabric....probably not as many pockets as I would like but it is doing the job and I can sling it across my body and be hands free.  Did I say I love the fabric?  It is by Lily Bloom
