Signs of the coming of spring are in the air!

If you want to see a beautiful & prolific vege garden - go and visit Northey St City Farm. It looks magnificent at the moment! I am helping to take J4's kindy class on an excursion there on Friday. They have started a bit of a garden at the centre. I am looking forward to seeing their faces as they explore & discover all it has to offer!
The birds have also picked up considerably (magic stuff yoghurt!). Compare Blacky now:
|Blacky after the moult (and probably with a gut infection).|
To then (May):
You'd think it was a different bird.
I've also managed to do a tiny bit of refashioning.
I bought a denim Regatta jacket from our lovely local cafe, Bowerbird, great versatile colour and a really good weight for Spring (and Autumn) in Brisbane.
But it was a bit boring.
So I jazzed it up just a little.
|Suffolk Puffs (or yoyos) added to front placket, pocket, & collar|
|It was a bit large & shapeless - so it got a 'tuck' to bring in the waist.|
|Closer detail of the collar & placket.|
|And of the fake 'belt' to dress up the tucks.|
I wore it today to lunch at 'Sails' restaurant. Early celebration of Mrs Skivvy's birthday.
Sat outside - and the kids were able to go play on the beach when they got bored - leaving the grown-ups in peace! Wonderful!
Bye for now, Ravs
