Oh to be 4 again

Yesterday Miss M celebrated her 4 birthday.    Delving into a birthday bag of goodies


Each year her godmother makes a requested birthday cake.   This year Miss M asked for a ladybug cake and she was lucky enough to get 3.


A great day was had by all especially the birthday girl who scored some lovely gifts from family and friends. 

During the week hubs and I had an enjoyable day out when we  visited the Ku-ring-gai wildflower garden.   It was a perfect day weatherwise and as we were there early not many people were around so we virtually had the place to ourselves as we wandered around the shaded boardwalks.


We saw our state's floral emblem - the waratah


One of the world's oldest trees - the wollemi pine


Below is a selection of wildflowers that can be seen as you walk through the area.


And an unusual way to use fallen seed pods


It was a lovely way to spend the day especially during the beautiful spring weather that we are having at present. 

Back soon and in the meantime

Happy sewing all
