Winter Flora








There will probably not be a lot of sewing related photos from me for a wee while.  A week ago when Auckland experienced some exceptionally heavy rain in a very short period of time, our garage and the attached sewing and computer rooms flooded.  Luckily they are separate from our house, and it appears to be only the carpets and some storage cupboards that have been damaged (my fabrics were all safe) . However we had to clear everything out of these rooms, so subsequently my house currently looks like we should be on one of those hoarders tv shows.  Unfortunately my fabrics were first out, and that means I cannot reach them for the time being.

Every time it rains I stress, so today I took myself out for a walk (and got rained on) and found some prettiness around my neighbourhood to cheer me up.

  1. Oh sorry to hear that your place was one of the homes to suffer flooding in all the terrible weather we had!
    Hopefully it won't take too long before everything has dried out or perhaps in the case of the carpet - replaced.
    Your photos just show that even in Winter there are wonderful colours for us to enjoy.

  12. You have some great colors. Here in Taranaki, my garden didn't know it was winter until yesterday so many of the flowers were very green with a few blooms.
