Today the weather has been...

...just beautiful.

Hope it was as good where you are.

Today was the start of 'members weekend' at Pinnacle Crafts over at Barleylands...unfortunately I can't show you what I bought because they had sold out and I had to order it. Never mind, at least I got my 30% off and I also managed to get myself booked onto Andy's next "Tim Holtz style" day.

However, I couldn't stay disappointed for long because today has been such a lovely day. The sun has been shining, the sky has been a lovely blue and I was able to go out without a heavy winter jacket...a bit of nice weather makes all the difference. After my bit of retail therapy I went for a bite to eat then I just had a lovely wander around the craft village.
The grounds are always so beautifully kept and it was lovely to see the blossom tree in flower.
My photography may not be very skillful but I had to have a bit of a play with some close-ups. The tiny little flowers were just so pretty.
I tried a bit closer still. Hopefully I'll be able to get these printed out and I might even feel inspired enough to make a LO of them LOL **please don't faint from shock - I do make the occasional LO**
Tucked away at the foot of the tree in amongst the shrubs were these cheerful narcissi (sp?)...another sign that spring is trying to get a hold.

I sat in the sun with a coffee for a while and just enjoyed the beauty of my surroundings. Whilst I was sitting there a cute little robin flew down to nab a worm that it had seen on the grass but it kept turning away before I could get a photo. Just as I thought I was going to get a good shot...the battery died. Oh well, perhaps another day.........................................

great photos Toni, it's so annoying when the camera battery dies when you're out & about.

Lovely pics Toni, it certainly looks like spring has sprung where you are!! We woke up to spikey frost laden ground and trees... very pretty but white is beginning to be over rated in my book!!
