Having had intermittent internet recently, I am happy to say that I "think", we are OK with technical stuff now. Just a quick post with some photos of what is going on around here.
IN THE GARDEN.
Although I feel we've neglected the garden this year due to the rather dull and inclement weather, it is surviving, but I'd love to get it restructured so I can work in it easier. Being quite steep & my ongoing back problems it is becoming increasingly difficult . I love pottering outside.

|The violets smell beautiful.|
|Some of the Hellebore buds are now out.|
|Looking across the top terrace & it really does need a bit of attention to make it look like I want it.|
|The veg beds have been tidied & really need moving to somewhere sunnier, so that is on the to-do list.|
I harvested the last of the carrots & removed all the spent vegetation last week on a dry day.
A car club friend had trees come down on their property just outside of town, some over the boundary fencing, so off we went to cut firewood to feed our woodburner.
|Roadside trees down.|
|The beautiful views over our countryside. This is the view I had whilst loading the wood.|
|DH busy with chain saw.|
|The mess these gum trees make when they fall. This one came down over the boundary fence.|
IN THE SEWING ROOM.
My design wall is looking quite full at the moment with Quiltalong sewing bits. I'm participating in 3 at the moment & will talk about each one under the separate photos.

I've just started row 3 & have been a bit of a rebel as usual. I'll try and update more often.
