Oh Spring, how I have missed you!
Today was the first day of Spring here, and it was glorious.
I heard birds I haven't heard all Winter, smelt flowers in the air and felt the warm sun biting my skin.
The thing I enjoyed the most, was the fact I got to hang out a full line of washing to dry in the sunshine.
There is nothing like fresh washing that has been dried in the sun!

It is very satisfying to know that our life of outdoor living is about to begin. This means bar-b-q's, backyard Cricket, water pistols and Al fresco dining. Yay!

All of these flowers sum up how I am feeling right now, and this one of our dining table which I took last Spring, remind me that I must cut some of the blossom branches that are blooming to bring inside.
Welcome Spring. I hope you stay a while =0)

  1. There was not a sign of spring today in my home town, just out of Melbourne! I am definitly craving it!

    Enjoy your sunshine...

  2. I have to admit I'm a little jealous!! Fall is coming to my town..which I love fall but that means winters coming!!! I'm really not a winter girl!!!

  8. So do I Ness,

    Hope tomorrow is as perfect weather wise as today! Spring has arrived (fingers crossed) not a moment too soon. No more wet washing draped everywhere. Bring it on, I say!!!!!
