A Hen in our yard

One of our new arrivals in our backyard. She is a brown leghorn.  Her folded over red comb will give her some shade on hot, sunny days. We are getting one egg every one or two days. When they settle in they will probably lay more. We hope so!

Don't forget to be a part of  Fibre Fascination giveaway.  It finishes on the 3rd November. Have a look at the blog entry before this one and you will find out how to enter.
We are going to Sydney for a family wedding so it should be good family time and celebration. On return we will find out who has won the giveaway.

Do fairies live at the bottom of the garden? Lets have a look.

My daughter, her three children and myself went on a journey.  We had heard that there were fairies at the bottom of the garden at Willow Park.  We weren't sure about this.  We needed to find out for ourselves. 
We have some photos of our journey.  Willow Park is a very big, very beautiful garden quite close to us.  I hope you enjoy our visit.  (I had another beautiful garden photo, but picassa is not letting me have it!) sorry, I'll take those words back.  Its up there!  I do like it.

 We thought this 'wobbly' bridge might take us to where the fairies live, but it was rather scary for us.  So we backtracked and went another way.



Oh so hungry!
This is such a big garden.  It is time to rest and have a bite to eat.  Then we can carry on looking for these fairies.

We must be getting close.  The sign says that fairies dance and share secrets at the bottom of the garden.  I hope that is true. 
Lets wait and see .............

Look what we found at the bottom of the garden!

At last we found a fairy! She was blowing us a kiss.  Doesn't she look beautiful?  And so it is true. There really are fairies at the bottom of the garden at 'Willow Park.'

and she has a friend too!Posted by Picasa

My style of Peonie - take a look!


I made one or two of these peonies recently. I delighted in how each petal turned out. A little bit of melting and each layer of petals formed a rather delightful flower. It can be worn as a brooch or clipped onto a bag, or whatever takes your fancy.
I plan to have this one listed in my etsy shop 'fibrefun,'  soon. I find the listing procedure looms rather large in my mind. I haven't listed often enough to be familiar with the process. I just need to do more of it. Anyway this is 'my style of peonie.'     You  can see it in my etsy shopPosted by Picasa

A bunch of daffodils from my garden enhancing the view from the conservatory where many coffees are enjoyed (not all in one day!!!)
I hope your week is a good one!
I'm planning on having a good one too.
