Yesterday saw me cleaning up this lot - lovely for my compost.....many more to fall yet.
The oak tree here is almost done. I mowed this lawn on Monday and this lot has fallen since. It is wonderful compost when mixed with grass in the catcher of the mower.
I have been picking camellias for the vases lately. Here are the ones on the sideboard.
On the other end of the sideboard are these lovely cards.
As it is a special day for me I also got an early morning phone call from my very old Aunt. Having marvelled at the stamina of the Queen in the last few days, I realise there are some wonderful role models out there for older woman. Luckily it only happens one number larger at a time.
These are gum trees behind the house on the hill and quite close behind the shed roof. Some of them are being felled professionally today for firewood for next year.
The first one from this group has just hit the ground with a huge bump - shook the house.
I'm off now to take some photos.
