Santa picked up my SSCS present this morning... so it will be winging its way to.....secret...can't tell. Hope she likes it. Thanks to Chookyblue for organising it again this year. I know she has been very busy this year and organising it is not a quick job.
Also going off are some of my eBay and Gumtree sales. Glad to see some of my stuff going off to new homes and not the bin.
And I'm nearly packed to fly off to Bathurst tomorrow for a bloggers meet. I'm so looking forward to a little break. I have my contribution to the nibbles and my plastic wine glass. Didn't want to take the crystal one or the bottle to go with it because, just my luck, would see my suitcase tumble off the conveyor belt. I'll have to get the liquid to go into it when I arrive. Hope the pub does take outs.
Instead here are some of the blooms in my garden. I don't like to complain about our lack of rain because I know people in worse off conditions who rely on good weather for their livelihoods, but we have only had about 15% of our normal rainfall this winter and spring. This spring though has bought out very spectacular flowerings on trees, shrubs and plants. Maybe they thought it might be their last hurrah. Last night's thunderstorm was well received here. My very nearly empty tanks are very nearly full again.
This is a small part of my Dancing Lady orchid.
Ah well, I'd better be off. I have to hunt out the bigger suitcase from the storeroom, and here was I thinking I'll only need the little one for a few days away. Cue hubby in the background - I knew she couldn't fit in the little one.
