I don't think this wrap will help the girls very much but it certainly adds a touch of glamour to their winter.
Some days are a tad warmer...
early morning sun makes the world seem brand new; especially after rain.
I've been tidying up all kinds of corners, like in here under the old plum tree where we put down a little bark (not too much mind...it's a wee bit ugly). Winter sun is sneaky, it turns up in places it never thought about in summer.
Winter roses or hellebores are such a welcome sight
on these crisp, cold days.
There are some new additions to the fairy garden...the little lass is a wee bit shy.
See what I mean.
& flower basket.
This little one is away-with-the-fairies (& the birds) for sure.
There's lots flowering in my garden in sheltered possies.I just adore this primrose. I've never seen this colour before....so pretty.
I think that my new bird feeder has become the star attraction at the bottom of the garden...look at this crowd waiting their turn.
I had to remove a few bits & pieces with all the riotous enthusiasm & carry-on. I have put fat in the coconut shell & anchored the pear with an old metal flower frog. The wild bird seed is scoffed in no time at all & everyone seems to enjoy the sugar water. The tui has even descended to take a quick drink.
I have managed to do a few inside jobs too like painting this old washboard that seemed a bit dowdy & plain.I used a test pot & a few scraps of my favourite Cath Kidston antique rose white wallpaper.
This tray from the op shop was just as dull as the washboard (plain brown) so I painted it with Pearl Lustre & used Cath Kidston spray flowers oil cloth for the bottom.
Much better!I also revamped this tray but seem to have some air bubbles now that it's dried. Any suggestions on how to remedy the bumps or do I peel it off & start again?
Our lovely boy said goodbye once more just over a week ago & headed off with all his worldly possessions to a little place called Gordonton in the Waikato to work on (manage) a blueberry farm. We'll miss him...a lot, but it's so good to see him making his way in the world & going new places, meeting new people & learning....all the time. He's becoming quite fluent in Chinese!
Thank you for your visit lovely friends.
Have a wonderful week...whether keeping warm or cooling off!
See you again soon.
