We have been off camping at the beautiful Mt Lees Reserve. The camping area is surrounded by native bush, and the bird song is spectacular. Three black and white ducks made several appearances, as they slowly waddled past the pink “Naked Lady” plants which were flowering well. The ducks did look rather comical as they first walked one way along the path, then back again.
The weather was hot and sunny and I spent some time relaxing under the sun shade with my stitching. My first job was to start sewing up a little pink fluffy toddler’s jumper which has been put aside for a while. It may be little, but this sort of job still takes a while. I’m not quite finished as I feel that the attached hood needs a knitted band around the edge to finish it off nicely.
Then I did some more work on the stitchery cushion I’m making – this is the second of these I’ve done. The first was a gift and I’ll be keeping version number two for myself.
While I was whiling away the day sitting by myself enjoying the fresh air, the birds, and my hand work, Robin was hard at work with a team of Cancer Society Volunteers manning a stand at the Central District Field Days at Manfield Park. They were there to promote men’s health, as everyone knows that some men are notoriously difficult to look after their own health. He was exhausted when he finally returned back to the caravan, after being on his feet the whole afternoon is such sweltering conditions. (Nothing that a cool beer couldn’t put right).
As well as the waddling ducks, I spotted a collection of gnomes on the path to the Bed and Breakfast homestead which shares the grounds at Mt Lees Reserve. Looks like someone had fun collecting and arranging them.
