This last month of Autumn started with a bang when we had the rain event on May 1st which resulted in a number of fatalities as well as major flooding in some areas of SE Queensland. It was also the day I flew to the Outback to visit my daughter and her family which you possibly read about in my post Travel Chaos.
I had a lovely time getting reacquainted with my little grandson who is much loved by his big sisters.
He is quite a character and his facial expressions are just so cute. It will be a few years before he realises I am Nanna as I only see the children twice a year and there are big changes in their growth etc. each time I visit. They make the long drive down to the SE every few years as it is quite a journey and will be even more so with three children now not to mention being quite expensive as well.
Since I have been back home I don't feel like I have achieved much at all apart from knitting my first sock of course :-)
I still have to work out where I can find a pot to fit into 'The Pig' which I bought on a discount table at Bunnings. It is an odd shape which I didn't consider when I bought it.
I am pleased that some of the cuttings I put in are growing well and flowering.
The Lemongrass is still waiting to be divided up. I look at it every day and think I should get stuck into it but still procrastinate. Am I the only person who does that?
Herb Robert is just loving this weather and is taking over everywhere. It is such a beneficial herb to have growing and I am always hoping that it doesn't die off in summer when it all but disappears.
I guess I did achieve something this week as I actually picked some kale for us instead of just for the guinea pigs and I made a green drink out of it. It wasn't something that I would write home about but I kept telling myself that it was healthy. I wonder why the guinea pigs like it so much though ;-)
As I have booked into two online Udemy photography courses I dragged out my DSLR camera and experimented a little with it. There are so many options to use it takes a while to get your head around what they all do. Goodness me, I think I need to weed the pot my pansies are growing in by the looks of that photo.
The Nasturtiums are spreading everywhere and I need to do something with them soon as they will disappear otherwise as the CEO doesn't like them and is always trying to get rid of them. LOL!
I will finish with this photo which I took this morning. It looked like an artist was painting white brushstrokes across the vibrant blue sky. I know that clouds mean something to weather forecasters and these particular ones might have been saying to enjoy the warm weather as a cold front will move in on the first day of Winter. Ha ha!
I hope everyone is enjoying their weekend wherever they are. Here though it is goodbye to Autumn and hello to Winter!
