A Day In The A Blue Mountains.

Thanks for visiting my blog. I welcome you to take your time and browse , visiting my bush garden and discovering the wonders of my city within a national park; Blue Mountains National Park. Via my blog you will travel with me through the successes, trials and tribulations of gardening on a bush block. I share with you my patchwork & quilting, knitting, paper crafts, cooking and life in general.

Day 301/366

Thanks Costa for allowing me to take your photograph today.
It's a pity that my little Grand Daughter was a bit shy and wouldn't join you in the shot.
But she did recognize you and said to me: Nanna, there's the man on TV. 
If it wasn't for her I may have missed you completely!

I'm really sad that your workshops were sold out and that we could not attend.
I hope that another opportunity presents itself!

Festival of the Green
Springwood Public School

At the festival we also saw scarecrows 

one very happy pig

a very unusual hen

a goat or two


a guinea pig

and ponies.

We listened to ukuleles, and munched on chocolate cup cakes.

And that was all before going home to a birthday party for our Grand Daughter who turns five next week. 

This year's theme: Octonauts (for the uninitiated, read underwater/animal theme.
(And who said dogs don't belong underwater?)

The birthday cake

the table centrepiece

the jellyfish

the party hats with a difference

the animal infirmary
(yes, that's right, the animal infirmary)

the googly eyed fish piñata 

and for those of you who were wondering what the dyed pasta was for, brightly coloured shells for necklaces

and ten very happy little friends.

Are you tired yet?

I am!
