in Melbourne at 1.00p.m. today

Today is the Spring Equinox in the Southern Hemisphere.   We can cast off our 'liberty bodices' who remember those.  And sort out our Summer Clothes.

And of course enjoy the garden.

If you are interested in learning more The Victoria Museum @
will explain it in more detail and much better than I.

My Symbol Postcards were mailed today, just made the dead dead line which is the end of the month.  I am longing to show you what I did, but am not supposed to show until they are received.

And I had a $40 off if I spend $100 from Spotlite.   So batting, rotary cutter blade, and sewing machine needles were purchased.   All for $69.

oooo liberty bodices - rather thick fleecy lined, with rubber buttons (think they were for fastening thick stockings?) Birdy you are talking 1940's - you are too young!!! lol.

How lovely to have Spring arrive. We have just had lovely warm sunny days - to tied us over the next six months. The foxes have been making that dredful screaming, waking us in the night thinking someone is in dire trouble! The outcome of which will bring forth pretty little inquisitive cubs later on. There are so many now, where are they all going to live?

Your clivias ? are beautiful. You must keep us all going by sharing your lovely coming warm months. I wonder if snow will again bring UK to a standstill!?! Not for a few months anyway. A nice Autumn to come. Cosy fires and hot crumpets and marmite - yummy...
