Spring has sprung

Well, it's certainly been a busy few weeks. It started with Damien, Kellie and family making the trek south for a week during the school holidays. During the holidays we went to the awesome ABC Gardening Australia Show at Caulfield racecourse. Angus even met B2. There really was something for everyone.


Just after the departure of Damien, Kellie and Co. we went to Healesville Sanctuary for an early morning breakfast and animal meet and greet before the crowds arrived. That was a great experience too, and only made available to Friends Of The Zoo.



Hot on the heels of Damien, Kellie and Co. was Viv, Brian and Angela. Their stay entailed lots (I mean Lots) of gardening, landscaping and general around the yard stuff. The transformation has been amazing and not a Spring minute has been wasted.



It wasn't all hard work of course. There was a local property open under the Open Garden scheme - so Karen, Viv and Ang couldn't resist. Patrick accompanied them.



One morning recently, Owen decided he'd help the dogs eat their Weet-Bix for breakfast. He's a great little helper!


Since the school holidays it has been Angus' birthday. The present from Nanna and Grandad was a scooter. While Angus got used to his scooter, Patrick mastered the art of no training wheels. Here's our happy big boy.


Playgroup has also been keeping Karen, Angus and Owen busy. Here's a few action shots and a photo of Angus and his mate Brendan.



And around the house, well butter wouldn't melt in their mouths!




We hope you're all well and we'll see you at Xmas time if not before (for anybody feeling like a trip South).
