Easter holiday and flowers

Hello blog world.

A bloody cyclone!

What I don’t like to come home to after a day of digging around in the garden is news that a cyclone could arrive here by Wednesday. I am now a home owner and I don’t want my home to ever meet a cyclone. My husband just sent me an image he found and now […]
