As the weather cooler a little, I worked outside a lot this week.
This is looking out over my beloved back garden, oasis this week.
I am working on a book (not part of a current series), that will be released later this year I hope, if not, next year.
In the garden I am doing a lot of clearing up of leaves! My 9 magnificent gum trees are shedding a lot of spent leaves and twigs and the hot summer winds are helping move that process right along. I'm harvesting lots of basil, chillies, parsley, chives, rosemary, last of the silverbeet, cos lettuce, tiny toms, sage, sorrel, cucumbers and I am blessed with many beautiful roses! The last of the most wonderful sunflowers has faded for the year and I've carefully collected millions of seeds. I am sure there are at least thousands!

I am catching up with a cluster I missed last year at Pearsons School of Floristry ~ Hand Tied.
Learning how to create bouquets and flower presentations and prepare them for sale and for occasions.
This week I had a lot of fun on STUDIO10 again, sharing some flower love and fun
Next week I plan to:
*ensure I get a Flower of the Day up for you all every day!
*climb up to the half-way mark on the new book I am writing.
*complete a few block prints I have sketched out
*catch up on my Pearsons School of Floristry assignments
*repot my Devil's Ivy and propagate a few new babies
*plant some leeks and radish and perhaps some more lettuce.
*tidy up all my daisies!
