Spring is here

 
We have had a beautiful day today here in Sydney. Spring is well and truly here and the flowers are all out and the scent of freesias  in our garden is a constant reminder that the warmer weather is here.
 
 
My birthday was ages ago, and I received this gorgeous gift for my birthday from a blogging friend, Margaret, who lives in Spain. The sewing is exquisite and I just love them.  I meant to blog about it, but having been away from blogging for awhile, it slipped my mind. However, it is better late than never, and here is a big Thank You to Margaret ( www.asamplerofstitches.blogspot.com.es) for these lovely gifts which I am using  and will treasure always.
 
 
Gifts from Margaret
 
 
The lawn in the garden has the spring grasses growing and the rosellas love them. The rosellas are timid birds so they are not often seen close up in the garden like this.

We do hope that the lovely weather continues as my daughter is getting married next weekend and the wedding ceremony will be held outdoors.
 
 
Until next time,
Cheers,
Yvonne
