Fun with Felt

I had a fun day this week making these felt balls with Sandrine. It was hard to make them all the same size, so there are some big ones, some little ones and some in-between.

What's blooming in my garden now? It is nearly springtime here.

This one is a viburnum. It is a great filler in bouquets, with it's frothy white and pink flowers and dark green foliage.

Jasmine - she is very fragrant. And is a mad rampant vine that tries to climb up everything. (and all through a nearby hedge too!)

Cream freesias. They are my only 'spring bulb' that will grow successfully here in sub-tropical Queensland. A wonderful perfume too. I look forward to them popping up along the hedge every year.

I must go now, as I have some cake baking to do.
Tomorrow will be exciting - we are taking the MIL whalewatching out from Mooloolaba.
Cheerio for now,

When I think of Australia, I think of Jasmine and Agapanthers (sp?), I love them both and but they don't overwinter here. Your garden is beautiful. Autumn is coming to our hemisphere - garden mums are very popular.

Neat felt balls! And beautiful flowers, the viburnun is so delicate.
Baking, hmm, I've been baking, too!
