Nature’s magic

After a weekend of rain bringing winter temperatures, the sky cleared today .. brilliant sunshine and blue, blue sky.  The air is quite nippy though.

Jeanette and family are away on a well deserved holiday at the coast where temps are much warmer than here – lets hope it stays that way for the entire time they’re there.

Sunshine + easy-to-work-with damp soil + peace and quiet

grandsons + trying to be creative for said grandsons who are getting bored with school holidays already + did I mention the peace and quiet

an afternoon spent in the garden without having to find more gardening gloves, extra shears, spades and forks  ..  stopping to make sure the pantry isn’t raided completely .. being a referee … …

spotting a brief moment when the sun’s magic transformed orange sepals into deep golden crossed horns ..
