This house, this garden, this little sanctuary that we all live in. I still can't believe that we own this place sometimes, this little piece of land, this tiny part of Australia. It's totally ours and I feel so lucky. The garden is the best place to hang out right now. Spring has arrived, along with growing chicks, flowers on our strawberry plants, and little shoots pushing their way up through the soil just about everywhere. The birds are singing (loudly, its pretty deafening sometimes), and there is a warm breeze caressing the whole of Queensland, it's just magic.
Apart from the fact that she always seems to want to go up and down the bloomin big stone steps, (touch wood, no accidents yet), and we're always trying to guide her away - the garden is the place that Miss Lucy wants to be. She runs around, the wind blowing in her curly curls, chasing her brother and sisters, and it's just the greatest thing for me to take a seat, (with my Canon, of course) and click away...ahh heaven! Poppy drags out her princess dolls, teddys, crowns, fairy wings and enters the make believe place that only Poppies can go, singing away quietly to herself as her imagination takes her on a journey. And Joey is a little fireball of energy, bouncing on and off the trampoline, chasing Poppy and running from Lucy. It's a busy hive of activity around here at the moment, and so fun just to sit back and watch them all...
And when Daddy comes home at the end of the day, it's another race to see who reaches him first..
I'm going to make the most of this Spring, and from me over here in Oz...G'day! :)
