An early Christmas with my family at mum and dad's. With siblings spread over Melbourne and into the north east we have lunch in early December and it somehow makes Christmas last all the longer.
An early start today, the girls loving every moment in nan and pa's back yard which is infinitely more interesting than ours - partly due to the bird life (can you see the King Parrot), but just because it's theirs and it is so lovely.
We did some nursery shopping sans enfant this morning. A Cercis Forest Pansy to be a feature tree in our newly landscaped and nearly finished back yard. Together with a Tahitian lime and Navel orange to be espaliered along the back fence, as well as new and interesting herbs to fill in the gaps and perfume the air.
