after the rains

Finally the rains have stopped pouring down here in Brisbane and I finally had a chance to head outside and get some sunshine. Well almost sunshine, there is a touch of blue sky up there somewhere. Ruby finally got a chance to head outside and do her business. How a dog can hold on for a day and a half astounds me, but she was adamant, she would not get her paws wet... I told you she was precious.

After all the rain, it was so lovely to see that our watermelon seeds have sprouted. Have I ever told you how much I love watermelon? Every breakfast I have a fresh watermelon and pineapple juice, and oh how I cannot wait to have our own watermelons taking over the garden. Isn't it such a miracle that a bunch of seeds can sit dormant in a paper packet for so long, and then once they are planted and receive literally bucket loads of water they sprout into life. The wonder of nature I suppose. Such little things intrigue me...

On to other news, last night I had such a wonderful time catching up with old friends and making new ones at the ABCD Brisbane get together. Organised by the gorgeous Steph and Kim, it was such a lovely evening. How lucky we are to live in such a creative community - wonderful things are happening here in Brisbane, it is oh so very exciting to be part of it all.

Have a gorgeous weekend my friends. Tonight I have my nearest and dearest friend travelling up to stay with us for a weekend of bridesmaid dress shopping for her wedding in August. So exciting, oh how I love gorgeous dresses!

I hope you have a wonderful weekend as well my friends.



  1. Wow, there is going to be a lot of watermelons at your house judging from all those sprouts....
    It's lovely to hear you had a great time last night at the ABCD meet up - I so wished I could have gone, maybe next time.
    Have a great weekend.....

  2. We've got African Horned Melons growing in our backyard - how random is that? Courtesy of a bird I believe. They're not ripe yet, but something tells me that your watermelons will be much nicer!

    And your Ruby is precious? A day and a half? Eeek!! Our Shadow on the other hand, decided he needed to go out at 2am and got completely soaked. I wouldn't mind if he was a bit more precious sometimes!!

  3. nice post and great looking pictures

  4. It was so great to finally meet you Alischa - I had a wonderful time! And Ruby is sooo gorgeous :)

  5. Your watermelon look promising! I too am growing my own herbs, tomatoes, lavender, & flowers. How fun it is!
