Beautiful Begonias

 On Saturday I went for a lovely walk through our local Botanical Gardens with my mum.
 We recently had a Begonia Festival and the display was just magnificent.
 Everywhere we looked in the hot house was just amazing.
 We kept saying to each other "look at this one! . . . look at this one!"

 The Prime Minister Walk in the Gardens is also interesting.

 This is our newest Bust that was unveiled this year.

 An amazing likeness of Julia

It was a lovely way to spend a Saturday afternoon

It's a Jungle out there

 Angus is 6 months old.
 We got him from the RSPCA last Saturday
 He is a wonderfully friendly, placid little puss
 He has been inside for a few days but has just begun exploring the garden
He thinks he is "the king of the world"...but we know the other 2 cats are...or one in particular! 
 There were so many places to hide and explore
 He had a lovely time out there

 . . . and then it was time to rest on a quilt inside
and have a cat nap

 a ginger kitten today!

 I've been blogging for awhile now, and have had the pleasure to meet up with a lot of these virtual friends.
 Such great, like minded people . . .
 One of these lovely ladies is non other than
 A month or so ago, I got a lovely email, asking for my address, because she wanted to send me some bulbs she had been dividing.
 A few days later a lovely parcel arrived full of plump juicy bulbs - all named and wrapped and still damp from the earth.
 I put them in the ground and the most wonderful thing happened ...

Thank you Bloom - further updates as it comes out

Little Ted

 This is Little Ted, who tucks up with me each night. 
 He is quite cosy in there, and I took the photo to show one of my Grade 6 boys who was telling me that he tucked up with his ted every night.  I think he was surprised that I did too.
 This is Master Flowergarden 14 and Miss Flowergarden 17 heading off to school in all their finery.
 I'm so happy they can go off together this year, and love seeing them carrying instruments to make wonderful music.
 In my sewing room, I am slowly working on my Liberty Quilt Mini Log Cabins.  It's almost like a watercolour with all the beautiful prints melting into one another.
 I really must stop taking these pictures from my car window....but it's such a wonderful sight for my eyes. 
 Then at MY school, it's all about Data Collection and Feedback.
 OK!  That's enough now
