Happy sheep ......

Isn't this the happiest little sheep you ever did see?


This is an Annie Down's stitchery called Summer Frolic and found in an old Australian Country Threads magazine (I don't know which one since I enthusiastically tore lots of my patterns out to put in folders!!!)



(thanks Jeanette for showing me this one...... love it...I loved this movie and this caption is great)

The heatwave is over... the plants are happier though we need rain

I just love this bromeliad flower.. so symetrical...


the birds are happier.... so many rainbow lorrikeets the last few mornings... I love that most of them are in pairs and a bunch of youngsters.. the noise is pretty intensive as they squabble quite a lot .

.... the couples mostly sit in pairs and do a lot of smooching.. the youngsters still fly around a bit silly and often hit my window... so I have several frights before my second cup of coffee!


Tomorrow night is 


I'm thinking of quiche .... with a gin and tonic......

Righto, Gotto Go...I want to find the threads to do some more of the happy sheep stitchery

I have this pattern too and love it - recognised the sheep as it came up on my reader!! Lovely photos showing your surroundings, pleased to hear the heat has eased some.

Oh my gosh, the birds are wonderful there. I sometimes forget it's summer in Aussie-land.

A very cheerful sheep......or should that be "shearful sheep"? (sorry about that......*grin) We are expecting hot temps late next week again, not looking forward to it.

what a great sheep, so happy!
glad you are getting cooler weather but did you have to send the hot weather down here?
your bromeliad flower looks amazing, such a soft colour pink, gorgeous.
I love the sixth sense photo, lol
you can't not be happy stitching those sheep.

Sheep is cute but those birds are amazing and most be wonderful to watch. You must have sent the heat this way going to be a stinker for the next week.

Marilyn said...

Yes, a very happy sheep - obviously not from the drought areas I think. Love your bromeliad. I hope to "see" you tonight - now that I know it is Friday. I lost a day somewhere, I thought it was Thursday today. I think that is called holiday mode isnt it?
Hugs xx

Glad the weather is being a bit kinder to you, your garden and the birds.

Lovely pics of the garden and garden visitors. That bromeliad is stunning!

Your sheep made me smile , Fiona. Georgeous birds- I live near a lake and the cockies and galahs are very noisy at present; I love hearing them.
