 and my Begonia that has come back from last year, and is coming into bud
VERY exciting!
 Pink Quilt washed and fluffed up, ready to go . . .
 . . . and I was so excited with the news, I also made a flannel wrap for the new baby - Pippa Rose
 And just a little random sewing of my own

Lambley at Ascot

 My first day of Holidays today
 I got Master Flowergarden, the Learner Driver, to take me to
my favourite nursery
 I can feel a lot of trips ahead, as he's only up to 30 out of 120 hours.
 I had a lovely walk around seeing all the Autumn colour
 It was hard to believe, but I didn't even buy a plant!
 The truth being, I had trouble finding something I didn't already have
 I was pleased to see that their garden was in a similar state to my own. . .
 . . . with lots of Autumn work to be done.
 I came home inspired, and pulled a few weeds

 . . . and I'm putting a Blue One together, just in case!

New Nursery Shelves

Mr Flowergarden cut my "Christmas Mesh" and made me some new shelves for my Nursery, down the side of the house.

 It's forced me to have a big tidy up of plants and get things back into order down there.

March Madness

 When I had a look back at the posts I have done for March, there were surprisingly only 2 - it has been a very busy month.
 The weather is beginning to change and I'm loving the colour in the trees, but the rain refuses to come.  Everything is still SO DRY!
 My faithful flowers continue to shine however, and come up by seed where I don't even plant them.  I enjoy these ones so much.  I have lots of tomatoes that came up late by seedlings, and are setting fruit. 

I'm wrapped with my capsicum plants.  We had one with our tea tonight, and it was so satisfying picking it straight from the garden.  I've never had great success with capsicums but this year is a winner.

There is a baby about to arrive in the neighbourhood.
I think it is only 2 weeks away, so thought I'd better get busy and make a quilt for the new arrival.  She already has a boy, so I have decided that the new one will be a girl.

Quilting and binding, and then I will probably relent, and make a boy one too!
