Something from my garden

Nodding violets

Dancing Violets

I don’t seem to have “time” recently for trying to be creative……unless you count monthly bulletins as creative!

So in an effort to prove I’m still breathing, some recent photos from my garden:

  1. Maureen, just knowing that you’re fine and still beating your drum is enough to make me happy. You could post photographs of the tyres on your car and I’d still be happy to hear from you.

    Your mojo has just gone on holiday for a time. It happens to all us crafty folk now and again. You’re mojo will arrive back from holiday soon enough and once it’s had a rest, a cup of tea/coffee and some time to get it’s groove on, you’ll be making again and back in that creative zone. In short …. don’t sweat the small stuff.
    Sending loving crafty vibes through the ether.
    Love ~ Cobs. x

  2. Thank you Cobs!
    I still find it difficult to accept that “age” and other things are slowing me down 😉
    It’s deciding what is “the small stuff”.
    Dare I admit, that when I accepted to “do ” presidency of the group I’m involved with, I didn’t realise the extent of demands on my time……….. and, being me, I want to do the best I can.
    Ideas are bubbling in my aged brain. I just need TIME to achieve what I want to (achieve)

  3. Well yes it’s good to know you’re still breathing an enjoying your garden, happy summer 🙂

  4. Happy Summer to you Gilly, but now it’s what passes for Winter down here Maximum of 20 degC today.

  5. beautiful flowers. Miss the postcard gang,, but just have to keep in touch this way. for some reason, the seasons are racing by… You must have winter now, we are having a heat spell.. 104 plus supposed to be this week.. But I am doing a little gardening in the AM.Hope all well with you… hugs. v

  6. Beautiful plants and blooms. I’ve not seen any of these before. I hope it won’t be long before you’re feeling more like being creative. It is a huge task to have taken on, running as President for your group. You would be much appreciated for the work involved.

  7. Maureen, Most of these plants are pretty common in SEQ.
    My garden survives in spite of me, if I’m truly honest.
    What I am finding difficult to come to terms with is that I am now first in line to learn news of members dying.(and how to cushion the news for members)
    I can accept that dying is a natural progression of living. Not everyone can.

  8. Hello, Maureen. I’ve just discovered that I’m not following your blog so I’ve clicked FOLLOW now. Sorry about that.

  9. No problem Dai! As you can probably see, my blog is in the doldrums: old age/ill health or just not having the mojo at this time.
    But like that American General (MacArthur) of WW11 “I will return”.
    Take care……….

  10. Hi Maureen and good morning. I just had a shock to see that I wasn’t following you. I can’t explain how that happened but possibly when I was messing about with my non-understandabilities a few weeks ago.

    Take care Maureen.

    Hug from Dai
