The judge for the garden competition has just been. Phew!!!! Mind you, he was only here about 5 minutes!!! Oh well, time will tell!! He was quite complimentary though and realised the garden is just two years old.
We have two invitations to attend afternoon tea functions in the next week, so I am looking forward to that. One is with the Mayor and Councillors as a thank you for entering and the other is the Awards Afternoon.

I am so pleased with the vege patch. It is coming along beautifully and has grown heaps just in the last two days since I took this picture.
What a lovely surprise I received today when I collected the mail. Lisa from
Knitty, Vintage and Rosy had sent a packet with this lovely magazine in it. Lisa was one of the winners from my Anniversary giveaway. She was so thoughtful sending this, thankyou Lisa.

Have you seen my little countdown above? I suppose you have guessed where I am going.
My dear friend "B" has been hatching a plan for well over a year for us to head south for a weekend and attend Leanne and Rosie's wonderful "Spring Stitch-In" at Glenharrow.
We are flying to Melbourne on the Friday, stitching on Saturday, staying a Glenharrow for two nights, and flying home on Sunday evening. The excitement is starting to build, I can tell you!! It will be just lovely to be away with the girls (there are 6 of us).
I have never been away like this before, so I am soooooo looking forward to my time in Melbourne. So any shopping suggestions are gratefully accepted, as I don't have a clue about the shops in Melbourne at all.
Today I am counting my Blessings, thankful for each and every one of them.

Oooh, you'll love the Mary magazine (well I do, anyway). My friend Ms.Pamela.No.Blog buys me a gift subscription every year. I so look forward to them. :)

Thanks for your comments on my post.
Glad the garden competition went well. Your veggie patch looks fab. I keep telling myself I will grow some next year but just never get around to it. Reading blogs however and seeing what everyone grows makes me think that next year will be the year!!!!!

Hi Leisa, I have really enjoyed reading your blog, love your garden. How lucky you are going to Glen Harrow, a friend asked me to join her on this wonderful weekend also but unfortunately I had other commitments. If you are looking to shop while here try Westfield at Fountain Gate which is quite a large shopping centre not far from Glen Harrow. Good luck and I hope you have a wonderful weekend.
