Aaaaaah Outside

We have been taking advantage of the beautiful Spring weather we've been having, to get out in the garden and get amongst it. It's breakfast, then on goes the 'old clobber' and then outside. We've been planting our seedlings - ready to plant out when the last frosts disappear.We've been busy in and out of the sandpit.We've roped Grandma Loz in to put some final decorating touches on the cubby house of architectural merit (more on this later)...So we can host high teas fit for the Savoy. 'Quel surprise! Tea and mud tart! Delicieux!'Perchance would there be room at your table for one more?We've brought in the big guns to relocate some wood to our shed.and basically eaten and smeared ourself with more dirt and mud than is on offer at a day spa. Oh Spring - I salute you! This year I have made a pact that this is the year of the garden.... and with a start like this - clearly it will take alot to get us back inside!

It has been raining cats and dogs here in Perth. Seems like everyone else in oz is having a fabulous time. Looking forward to some sunshine over here... and loving the bog rolls to plant seedlings. Brilliant idea. We'll be following your lead once we finally can get out of the house.

Ah the mud pie, life isn't complete without it!

It all looks magnificent but if that teapot is anything like I think it is, then I suggest we form (another) mutual support group.
