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.

Every thing is coming up Roses...

... in my garden, that is.  Today, I picked these gorgeous Golden Fairytale blooms.  (The first pic I altered with Impresso).





... and last week I picked forty-three blooms from my garden (the bulk of them were from two crimson rose bushes).  There were so many that I could not fit them all in one basket as I was picking them.




It looks like it is going to be a very good year for the roses!

hugs,

Wonderful roses that you already have. Mine are coming to an end, there are just four buds that will hopefully open up these days as since yesterday the wind has brought us much higher temperatures after two very cold and sometimes even frosty weeks.
