I’ve been knitting up a storm and have really loved designing Henrietta the Hedgehog, we will have a test knit of the pattern soon on my Ravelry group.


Our Spring garden is bursting with beauty and the most gorgeous variations of the colour green. I just love it!! Above is the beautiful Petria creeper in full bloom, takes my breath away…


A few eggs collected from our chickens yesterday, some are brown, some are white, others cream and of course slightly speckled.


Here is our precious girl Delilah lying on the couch in our bedroom this morning on her favourite blanket…

Today I am grateful for:

My family, helpful people, friends, our health, our beautiful pets, clean running water and food to eat each day. What are you grateful for today?

Hope your weekend is just lovely…




I am 43 years old today!

I’ve had a wonderful spring birthday. The weather has been perfect. We enjoyed a lovely breakfast made by my love, I received beautiful gifts and went out for tea this morning to one of my favourite nurseries, (of course I had to buy just a ‘few’ plants… one simply cannot visit a nursery and not buy plants, can they?? :)

It’s almost hard to believe I’ve been on this earth for 43 years…. what a wonderful journey it has been with many lessons learned, some difficult, others remarkable and the people I’ve connected with along the way have mostly enriched my life in a such positive way! I’m looking forward to the next 43 years and all that they will bring…


Yarn Along

New Hedgehog

We’ve just finished the shark test knit and I’ve started a new design for a hedgehog! I’m really enjoying the Fur stitch, it’s really fun to learn something new! I’m about halfway with hedgie and then we’ll open another test knit on my Mamma4earth Ravelry group!

The last few weeks have been a little chaotic, Jen has been writing Prelims and just finished today, she’s basically completed school and writes her finals in November. I really can’t believe how the time has flown, one minute she was just starting homeschooling in grade 4 and now she’s going to varsity in a few months…

Thanks so much for popping in here and reading, do say hi before you leave :)



Spring and other Happenings

3 Sept5

Happy Spring to everyone in the South! We have been experiencing the most splendid weather for the last couple of weeks and today, I think it’s going to rain, I literally can’t wait for a good thunder storm, that’s one of my favourite things!! This Clivia has just been transplanted to our new little rock garden under our Oak tree and is flowering profusely, I think the move did it good and doesn’t seem to have been affected at all by being transplanted.

3 Sept4

We have wonderful storm clouds brewing, the air outside is quiet and still, almost electric.

3 Sept3

Our fruit trees are in bloom, this is one of our pear pollinators, I’m looking forward to pears and it seems that our Cherry tree will bear fruit for the first time this year!

I’ve started growing spinach and peppers in the flower box just outside our kitchen window. The Mousebirds always seem to eat my spinach right down to the ground but not this year, they’ve left it alone so far.

3 Sept6

Herbs and veggies growing outside the kitchen door.

Have a lovely week :)
