Sunday was a big day for this family.  We had to postpone another momentous event - the official opening of our purrrrgola - because our middle son was arriving home after serving in Afghanistan.  This photo shows some of the families waiting patiently for our loved ones to appear.  Each soldier was greeted with a cheer & applause.  It was great to be a part of it all. 

The Brisbane Stitches & Craft Show is on until Sunday at the Brisbane Convention Centre.  This is the ATASDA (Australian Textile and Surface Design Association) stand at the show.  Such talented people.  There are over 600 quilts on display by Queensland Quilters & I've yet to have a really good look.  That will be Saturday and some of Sunday.

Views around the yard

This is our neighbour's cat - adding a hint of class to our pergola.  Not sure what she's checking out.The wagon wheel is 'antique' - not!  Bought it at "Wayne's World in Boonah so now you know the quality of it. Thought it would add another dimension to the back yard - HofM (husband of mine) still has to install it properly - hope it's done before the official opening.
View from our front our bedroom window - such beautiful blooms - the birds love them.  Red with gold tips - just brilliant.

 OK - not the best shot - I am an amateur when it comes to photography - but these are our first lemons, still growing, we are very proud of them.  Will let you know when harvesting begins!!!!  We also have an orange tree too - both are in pots - & it has a couple of oranges just starting to grow.  Excitement everywhere in Auchenflower.
