    could you pass that sent on to Perth? 🙂 I have to admit, I’m still enjoying the chilliness of winter here – cold nights and warm drinks.

    and Pia, you are forgetting that Sydney teases us for a while with some warmth and then she coldly whips us back into shape again… don’t put away your wooly tights! cioa

    One of my favourite flowers. At one of my favourite gardens here, there’s a row of magnolia trees which, when in full bloom, look like they’re covered in snow from afar, especially when the blooms start dropping and cover the ground! BTW, Pia, I bought your book from Small Acorns in Wellington and was touched by it. I hope one day to be as brave as you were!

    Hi Pia, I am so happy to see your emails. I can always find something to inspire me.
    I love the magnolia blossoms. A few years ago I lost seven huge oaks in my front yard due to four hurricanes which hit us. So I planted a magnolia tree which did not bloom until I tied fake blossoms to it’s branches. Then suddenly the tree gifted me with it’s own lovely blooms. I think the tree has a spirit!

    Sadly Jasmin is right …. but it was a nice little taste of things to come. My jasmine outside our front door is blooming beautifully … loving those magnolias too !!!

    there is nothing like the first bit of spring after winter, but here now in philly i’m really looking forward to fall.

    How lovely…they are! My husband went out with his electric saw and was madly pruning the bushes etc until I noticed….he’d chopped our lovely Magnolia tree without realising!
    It’s slowly slowly recovering, thankfully.
