Day 11 – March Photo A Day – Something Good

I fell in love with this giraffe when my cousin was pregnant with her first child, and I’ve been buying them for people ever since. Unfortunately the shop I used to get them from closed down a while a go. So I was very excited when the husband tracked one down and bought it for me. It’s so good that I have to keep it in the plastic until the little one comes.

Day 1 – March Photo A Day – Yellow

We have a whole lot of canola in our backyard that the previous owners planted. I was actually hoping that the hot weather would kill it off, but no such luck. Still going strong and spreading everywhere. One day we’ll get around to fixing up the garden.

Project 365 2013 – Day 103



We were in the city for the comedy festival to see Lawrence Leung (who I love by the way) and walked past this installation of yarn Federation Square. It must have taken a long time to put up because it was massive and went along the whole wall. I love how colourful it is and that there are so many random things like these in the city from time to time. I could totally do something like this at home, I mean if the husband let me, which I’m pretty sure he would not!

Morning Light

One of the things I love about my new place of work is that there are lots of lovely parks and gardens around. I love just sitting out in the park at lunch. It’ll be even better in summer falling asleep on the grass under one of the big trees.

In the driveway near the side door there are some cute daisies growing over the concrete barrier. It was a lovely sunny morning today, which always makes me happy.

And Finally The Rest

I’ve almost finished cleaning out the photos that I’ve been meaning to post. These are the last lot from the Melbourne International Flower and Garden Show March 2012. They’re all the indoor displays that were inside the Exhibition Building. Some of the displays were from florists, students, and vendors.

Love this wall of sunflowers

weaved leaves

These terrariums are cool

For some reason this reminds me of a jellyfish

Simple display


A pretty, but impractical dress

Love the glass hanging balls. They’re just so pretty


Stacked wood

Never seen tulips like these before. The frilly edges are interesting

This display was my favourite. All glass test tubes and tulips

Spheres of carnations

So many orchids

Gloriosa Lily

Wish I could grow pretty orchids


Hanging bottles from branches. Cute idea


Project 365 2012 – Day 256


After sourcing some colourful paper, I’ve started folding the lanterns to put on the fairy lights. It’s not quite as thin as origami paper, but I think it’ll still work. I haven’t puffed them up yet, because they’ll take too much room to store while I’m folding the rest. You can see the prototype I made a few weeks ago here. They look so pretty just as they are. I’ve got 250 fairy lights and I’ve made 10 so far, so only 240 to go!

In The Garden

Photos I took earlier this year from the Melbourne International Flower and Garden Show outside. So many flowers and colours. Good thing I don’t usually get hay fever


Cute plants growing in a saucepan pot


Colourful chillies. So pretty


Autumn leaves

Pink flowers

Reeds by the lake

Lavender (and an out of focus bee)

Oak leaves

Ladybird. I want one!

Plant clock



African violets


Hanging basket display

Grassy display

So many cactuses

Not sure what these are called, but I like them

Daffodil Day

It’s the 24th of August which means that it’s Daffodil Day. Daffodil Day is a fundraising event for the Cancer Council for research and patient support services. When you see a stall this weekend, stop by, say hi, and make a purchase or donation. Or you can donate online here

Project 365 2012 – Day 180


I got this sunflower from a friend a while ago. I like it’s happy smiley face, and yellow is a happy colour. It’s moved around a fair bit but it’s current home is hanging on the underside of our coffee table. It’s been a long week and I’m glad it’s Friday tomorrow.
