About Me

My photo
My name is Kaye and I am 58 years old. Unbelievably to me, at my age, I have now just embarked upon my third career - as a History Education Consultant! I love to cross stitch and quilt, especially with my kittens, Furio and Milo "helping" me. I also love to read, I have a passion for history and I have been cooking since I was about 12 - move over Junior Masterchef! So, this blog, which started out as a cross stitch blog sometimes morphs into a reading journal or a history lesson (sorry, I used to be a secondary teacher before I became a publisher and now a consultant) or a post about my cooking mojo. Whatever it is, this blog is alway about me, my family and my life here in Eaglemont, Victoria. I have been happily married for over 30 years to the most wonderful man and we are blessed with three beautiful grown up children.

Winter and Spring Flowers in my garden

I have Winter and Spring vying for control of my garden at the moment - lol!

The Camellias, Lilies and Hellebore are still going strong:

But the Freesias are making a strong play for Spring:

As are the bluebells:

I saw a promise of Summer Roses as well:

.... and maybe the birds will nest in the crabapple tree again this Spring:

...although with Furio enjoying the Spring garden, too, maybe not!

Have a great day everyone, whether it is Spring or my favourite season, Autumn, in your special part of the world.

From having mild spring weather for most of the summer, it was a shock to the system to wake up and have to put a winter coat on! Brrr! Lovely photographs of the plants in your garden, I love photo's of plants :)

Catherine said...

Shirlee said...

Bea said...

What beautiful flowers! It's a very foggy, chilly fall day here, so it was an extra pleasure to see your photos. Thanks!

Linda said...

Great garden pics Kaye. Furio looks like he's ready to pounce.

On behalf of Chiara (the grey tail):
what a beautiful garden you have! thank you for showing!
it's so weird, with fall arriving here, to see everything over there about to bloom.. wow!!

and just another thing: you have a crabapple tree?? now that's the coolest thing ever, here we do not have crabapple trees, even the superdelicious crabapple juice is mission-impossible hard to find.. enjoy it!! ;)

cuddle Furio for me.. he's always looking beautiful, funny and such a rascal at the same time! ;)

Just found your blog.
Your garden photos are lovely and Furio is very sweet.
You have some lovely stitching on your blog.
