I've been enjoying baking lately. Have you?
Perhaps you have a great new recipe you would like to share. I'm looking for Christmas ideas for cookie jars.
Think my gifts will be home made this year.

The Dublin Bay rose

This gorgeous rose was my Dads favourite. It's blooming at the moment and I think of him every time I water or admire them. I think it's wonderful that flowers connect with memories.  Do you have special roses at your place.?

Studio garden

The garden at my studio
I love these little Iris's and these gorgeous  roses.
I enjoy watering at the end of the day and just soaking up the colour and perfume. How is your garden ?

Cradle Mt beauty

We have enjoyed two days of walking at Cradle Mountain. The weather was perfect for walking.
I love to get out into the bush. Only one leech and no sore limbs, we have a day to recover before work tomorrow. Hope you have had a nice weekend. 

(Our cabin at the Highlander was so comfy and very warm.  Plenty of wildlife and bush around us.)
