Autumn already

At the beginning of Autumn I finally got to plant some sweetpea. Now I know everyone says you should plant these on St. Patricks Day but hey how do the plants know they were planted a little early. So far they don't seem to have gone into shock because of this. Now I have to wait until Spring for the beautiful sprays of flowers.

Another little thing planted on the first weekend of Autumn was my new bird house. Picked this one up on our travels in January. You can get some really lovely things in Bowral. DH has put the little bird there hoping to attract others he thinks.

It was a really busy weekend I can tell you. I talked DH into spray painting the bits and pieces we had picked up at various auctions that have been sitting in our garage for quite some time. I had already undercoated everything so we set up a spray booth out the back and everything has now been painted. It is amazing how once the idea is planted he will get into it with gusto. I am one happy wife to finally get things finished.

My three Blocks of the Month are also completed.
Bunny Hill Block. Love the bunny.
Ellies Place Block finished bar the month as we are not yet in Spring and the bee is missing.

( can't find that little button... I have one somewhere )

Gai Pans Block. I think I must have been in a yellow phase.

This weekend just past my we took my parents over to North Head to go and see the new Queen's State Coach. This photo is of my parents aren't they a cute couple been married 64 years this year.

This is the Queens coach built by Jim Frecklington. It was built and is housed at the old Artilliary Base at North head. What an interesting man he is, so interesting to listed too on how he came to build this beautiful coach and that it will probably be the last one ever to be built. We had a lovely day and Mum and Dad enjoyed the day out.
