too hot to sleep



A couple of plants in our front garden are looking amazing at the moment. We have been very lucky to inherit some beauties like this rhododendron whose pink blooms brush against our bedroom window.

It's unseasonally hot today - Hobart is known as a very temperate place but at this time of year (early Spring) the weather is anything but predictable. And in Hobart, extreme fire danger + one or two very stupid people = a terrible two days of enormous bushfires very close to city suburbs.

We have a view from our new house out to some rolling green hills, part of a flora reserve and home to some very rare trees and plants. I look out at their grey green hues every day and have often thought of taking a photo to share here. Now they are glowing red and tomorrow they'll be ashen and black.



There's been a definite lack of crafty activity around here lately but I cranked out some little baby suits the other weekend - my first commission! A work colleague wanted some groovy beanswear for her new little grandson. Welcome to the world wee Arj.

Those fires were amazing. Very apocalyptic and end of the world-ish.

(ps. Love your pink Rhodo)
