New life on Easter Sunday

New life springs forth with a vengeance after I saved some seeds from our once thriving hakea. Let me just say, that we suspect the tree was poisoned by our former landlord at  a stage when a proposal to redevelop the property meant that conveniently removing a few notable trees was in order. I really wonder about people most of the times these days. 
I think I'll take some more photos as these little beauty's progress.

Just a catch up on my neglected blog today. 

Have been busy, soap making for my little etsy shop, savonasoaps. Sewing aprons, making and drawing, as is typical of me. Our family spent a wonderful week in isolation down near Wilson's Promontory, where I took the opportunity to take lots of photographs with my new Nikon. Above is a drawing of a pacific gull that i rendered shortly after our visit. I named him, Wiskee, after the beautiful Whisky Bay, where we first made our acquaintance.

Needless to say, it is such a shock to return to the suburbs, as I, being so sensitive visually, notice the difference in light and how the less -than- clean air effects the colours and tones of the environment .

Nevertheless  it's back to suburbia as always, and one gets used to the flaws once again.
Some indoor moments captured of
  'home sweet home'.....
