Abby's Sunday morning
Abby has spent another Sunday morning in her favourite spot, engaged in her favourite activity - sleeping on the couch. It's a sunny morning but the wind is bitterly cold & rain is predicted for this afternoon. We're both enjoying Melbourne's first proper winter for some years. Chilly mornings, even a few frosty mornings; sunny, cold days & rain at decent intervals. My water tanks are full & the garden is looking lovely. The spring bulbs are pushing through & the Earlicheer daffs are blooming already. The single camellias are over for another year but the pretty pink one above still has lots of buds. I planted a couple of daphne, one pink & one white, & they both have buds & the geraniums are unstoppable. While Abby slept, I made some lentil & veggie soup which smells delicious. Enough for lunch & plenty for the freezer. I love this time of year. After lunch I'll settle in for an afternoon's reading & Abby will move from the couch to my lap & settle in for another snooze. I hope you're enjoying your Sunday, whatever you're doing.
