blossoms, bees and wees

The almond tree in the back yard is always the first to blossom, full of blooms and bees it positively vibrates at this time of year. I get my honey from an old man who lives at the end of my street and I wonder if these bees are from his hives? Will our next bucket o' honey have a hint of almond from our own tree? A nice thought. 

You may have noticed the lack of posting recently. It turns out puppies, toddlers and creepy crawly babies  are a lot of work (go figure) and there doesn't seem to be a lot of time at the moment for making things or finding things of even wasting a moment or two reading blogs or magazines with a cup of tea. My world is all about keeping the levy banks from breaking, one sand bag at a time (that levy I might add is holding back a reservoir of pee). But like all things, this too shall pass and I am armed, mop at the ready until then.

On a lighter note, it's HARD RUBBISH time in my hood, whoo hoo! I wonder what treasures the natives will be offering up this year?



  1. hi!
    hard rubbish it's called down there, huh? i'm loving it already... must be nice to 'curb' crawl? (:)))
    i love your picture! seasons all upside down, of course, because i'm in that early september mood&swoon, and loving it, but i absolutely don't mind taking notice of your great expectations!
    anyway. good luck, and have a good one. weekend.

  2. Oh you lucky duck, I love hard rubbish! Did you know that in some of the fancier suburbs in Melbourne you need a permit to collect stuff? Ridonkulous. Your almond tree looks great, a couple of my flowers are popping up but nothing to write home about yet... hurry up spring!

  3. Beautiful blossoms. And I love hard rubbish. And I can't imagine having a puppy a toddler and a creepy crawly baby! Mums are amazing. Rock.

  4. Great post . Have you read Pip's post today? It's all about writing what you want and when you want and I think you do that admirably. That photograph is divine.


Thanks ever so for taking the time to say hi!
