The Daffodil Visitor

I love watching bees how they land and crawl into blossoms. The smaller the blossom, the more popular it is with bees :-)

Yesterday from 8.30 p.m. to 9.30 p.m. was Earth Hour. Like so many good things, Earth Hour was born in Australia in 2007 and it takes place every year on the last Saturday in March. I've never missed Earth Hour, so yesterday I turned off all the electrical appliances and lights and went back to basics: I lit two tealight candles and enjoyed a quiet evening.

A Little Bit of Spring: The First Hyacinth in Our Garden This Year

Our garden is beginning to blossom in all its glory. The hyacinths are all out, but not fully opened yet. This little blue lady decided to win the race and open up completely, though :-)

It's Full Moon again tonight. However, tonight the Moon is closest to Earth after 19 years! A very special occassion that has to be "frozen" on a photo, as well :-)

The first crocus this year! :-)

Our garden is slowly becoming colourful :-) Today, the first crocus this year opened up. It was bathing in the warm sun all day. This crocus is special for another reason, too: it's a cross of some kind. It's violet at the top, with a white line in the middle, and orange at the bottom. I can't wait to see more of these in our garden! :-)

Aboriginal by Cobra_11

I love Australia and everything that comes from Down Under. So, after a long search I finally managed to get some colourful duct tape in the colours of the Aboriginal flag. This morning I had a great time making these four wallets. The first one is the "Aboriginal Flag" wallet (the flag is made on each side of the wallet and the two pockets inside are lined with a piece of yellow and red tape), the other three are just plain red, yellow and black.

Do you know that every part of the Aboriginal flag means something? The red is for the red land, the black is for the black people and the yellow is for the sun, shining on both, the people and the land.
