Non traditional

The  nice warm hint of spring has gone and we are huddled around the heater again.
We have had so much rain that the garden squelches when you walk on it.
Thankfully we have not had the high winds like those in SA have.
Neither have we had the rain although the north of the state have
had a good amount again.
Typical Aussie weather either a feast or a famine.

I don't usually use Pink for Christmas but thought I would challenge myself.

I am really pleased with the result.

  8. Hello Margaret,

    I just read your kind comment and it brought a lump to my throat, my congratulations to you and your hubby but so sorry you can't spend it together at home. As you say in the post below with your Granddaughters lovely card, where do the years go.
