We saw a lamb being born, something I've never witnessed before. It all happened very quickly, and within a matter of minutes the lamb was up on it's feet getting some milk from it's mother - amazing really.
Today has been a glorious sunny day. Sadly I was at work - I do occasionally have to work at the weekends. Mr Monda captured some of the spring goodness whilst I was stuck indoors. We have a huge cherry tree right outside our house - in the last week it has just started to blossomThis next pic is of the new growth of a great little tree that grows in our front garden - a house warming present from my mum. It is commonly called a 'flamingo tree' and less commonly called salix hakuro nishiki. It has amazing foliage - which is sometimes cream, sometimes pink and sometimes pale green. The branches are always a reddy colour like flamingo legs, I guess.
I'm making cushions, but I do also fancy having a go at a strips and bricks quilt like the one featured in the April edition of sew hip magazine:Of course, all I need to whip this up is an extra few hours in each day. sigh.
