Spring Garden ~ and an Update

After a stressful week away, it's good to be back home and walk around the garden.

Mum has been in hospital again - for just over a week now, and still a way to go before they'll consider letting her go home.

Statice - or Sea Lavender

We've had to cancel a trip to Tasmania that was booked and paid for. Mum became ill just days before we were due to go. We'll get there one day!

Kangaroo Grass - hoping I'll be able to divide this soon. It's a native and tolerates dryness well.

It's good to have a bit of a break from all the stresses, and lovely to see the flowers in my garden emerging for Spring. We're in the middle of a drought, but thankfully in the last couple of days, we've had some good, soaking rain.

Erigeron - or Sea Daisy

I'm not in the mood for sewing, but am going to try and force myself to do some today while I have the chance. 

Bromeliads that I see from my sewing room window

I'll be back when I can.
