Ben and Bambi

Two welcome new additions to the family here...

Bambi and Ben - the poddy calves... (poddys are calves that have lost their mother)  Only about 6 days old (one pic shows the umbillical cords still attached) and have learned to suck from a bottle so that's pretty exciting for us.  A  lot of times by the time a poddy is found they're too weak and have given up but these are going to be lovely calves.  Kids are ecstatic about them and can't wait to finish home school every day to play with Ben and Bambi... 

Their coats are sooo lovely and soft - I could cuddle them all day but unfortunately there is too much other work to be done...

~ A happy day ... ~

Time to break out the fireworks!!!

Today I sent a box of bookmarks, muslin pouches and a mixture of heart and rectangular sachets to Chantilly Cream - an utterly gorgeous gift shop in Mt Isa, North West Queensland.

The lovely Jen agreed to trial some of my pieces, so fingers crossed there will be more boxes to send to her in the future...   Yay!!!

in my garden

Gardens are such a great thing to have and the work that goes into them is colossal, so when it looks good, it pays to catch it on film before the white ants, grasshoppers or some other natural phenomena get it...

enjoy ...
