Look who came to breakfast

Autumn sunset over Hobart taken from my back door.

Then look who came for breakfast the next day

We often get 2 to 6 Galahs in the park over our back fence but 
this was only about a quarter of the flock that arrived today.
You can tell by the non existent grass we are still without rain.
Don't ask me what they feed on but as they grub around in the soil I would
guess it is roots.
The Magpies here often dive bomb them but they don't even bother to duck.
You could walk past and they wont move.
There is only one thing on their mind " food".

Thought you might like to see this card I have made with a few odds and ends.

The background was a left over piece of SW Bed of Roses EF that 
I swooshed with Spun Sugar DI 
The pink silver edged satin ribbon was the last on the roll
and when I was looking for something to finish the card what did 
I find but a bow in the self same ribbon.
I do have a box full of bows from oddments of ribbon.
Always good for finishing off a progect.
The 3D floral sticker comes from the Dollar shop
I was in the shop this morning and very tempted to buy more.


Here is wishing everyone a Happy Easter.  Enjoy and not too much chocolate.

  3. Hi Margaret
    Beautiful floral creation and gorgeous sunset.
    Magpies are pretty but not nice birds at all so good for the galahs ignoring them.
    Hope your feeling better.
