 When a bloggy friend sends you a text during History Class and asks if you're OK . . . and that she's missing my posts . . .  I thought I'd better post, but couldn't believe it had been 6 months since my last post. Just shows how happiness has affected me.  LOVED my Prunis Elvins this year.  I have stretched to 3 of these trees in my garden and they always blossom on my daughters birthday. No exception this year, and I even had coffee with my daughter on the day. Big milestone!  Went looking for crocs in Queensland last holidays  . . . was very excite ..read more

Tea Anyone?

 A retired friend of mine has joined the Succulent Society.  I have always been interested in them and have told her that when I retire, I will join too!  In the mean time, I've been enjoying finding interesting ones to add to my collection.  Look what my mum surprised me with the other day.  I just love it.  It's one of her special old cups that she had got a hole drilled in the bottom of.  Yesterday my boy played in a school band at Booktown in Clunes.  It was a lovely trip out in the country and the music was great.  I just can't help pulling t ..read more

 I'm not quite ready for Winter yet.  There is always so many jobs in the garden and lots of colour still happening - not just leaves this year but lots of flowers and bulbs too.  I have been busy planting my Spring Bulbs, but still have a few to go in the shed.  I keep finding bags of them that I have tucked away.  Normally in Autumn I am busy crochering, but I haven't even started yet.  i was excited to purchase some wool from Lucy Lockett Land and am going to cast on some socks tomorrow on my knitting machine.  That is if the weather doesn't look good ..read more

No Show MARCH

 Despite there being no blog post in MARCH, there was indeed a lot happening in the world of Flowergardenannie.  I have been loving my dahlia's and posting them regurlaly on Instragram - it's so quick and unfortunatley has taken away from the lovely blogging world.  That's progress I guess.  Then on the long weekend my Quilting Group (The Begonia Quilters - check out thier blog too) - held an exhibition in the centre of Ballarat in the old Mining Exchange building.  These are some of my quilts on display.  Then when it was all over, I decided to cut up all my ..read more

 The end of the second month 2017 already - Still warm here in Ballarat, and thankful for my airconditioner. Also thankful for only working 3 days a week this year.  I am loving it already.  3 days on then 4 days off - I actually get to breathe and am enjoying the quiet times.  I find that I don't put on radio or TV, just enjoy the peace.  My Gladioli's are all coming out into brilliant bright flowers right outside my back door.  This photo doesn't tell the full story as they are quite magnificent.  I am quitetly preparing for The Begonia Quilters Ex ..read more

 Here is the finished quilt front on.  A little bubble at the bottom, but I'm happy to have finished something, and have a fresh quilt hanging in my living space.  I uncovered an old one that was waiting for quilting, so I just might do it too while I'm in the mood ..read more

Sewing Room Attack

 I decided it was time . . .  I went into the sewing room and looked around.  Then I looked around again and just didn't know where to start.  I made a huge mess on the floor, and then thought . . . what next!  The only logical thing I could think of was - MAKE A QUILT - So I set about cutting and piecing and quilting and a week later, it was hanging on the wall.  Satisfaction as a distraction.  Now I still have a mess in the sewing room and will need to face it, but I can always walk around the garden instead. Happy Tuesday ..read more

Family

What is a Family? When I think about family, it means all sorts of different things to me.  I left home at 18 and lived a long way away from my nuclear family.  Although I kept in constant contact with my mum and dad, who were a great support to me, I needed more than that.  I needed to find people close by who loved me and would be "on hand" so to speak when I needed them - up close and personal. Initially I sought out Aunties and Uncles, cousins, and made special friends. These people were my family. When I ventured away from the halls of residence, where may I say, those p ..read more

Happy New Year 2017

 I've been doing a lot of things differently lately, and this holiday was no exception.  I just think that perhaps my life has changed and I am changing with it. I actually booked a holiday well in advance and was able to look forward to it.  It has made the long summer holidays disappear quickly, but that's OK.  I went on a holiday to New Zealand  with my new partner and my mother.  Watching her enjoyment of all things new, was such a joy as she had never been on such a holiday before.  She is 85 and had to get her first passport which was very exciting.&n ..read more
