It's a beautiful life with glimpses of goodness to be found every day. The Lilly Pillies are now ripening to a gorgeous bright pink and dropping onto the ground. These Australian natives are edible but the variety we have growing in our garden is rather floury and tart to taste with a seed in the middle. I've heard of people making jam from them but I like to just chew on a few when I pass by.
The Jane McGrath rose was released to help support the Jane McGrath Foundation, raising money for supporting breast cancer awareness and assistance. Jane was the beautiful, young wife of an Australian test cricketer who lost her battle with breast cancer in 2008. Yesterday was a special Jane McGrath Foundation day at the 5th Test Cricket game between Australia and England with the signature pink featuring heavily amongst spectators, commentators, sponsors etc. Also the day I took the rose photo above (coincidental) and the day Australia won the Ashes Series 5-0 bringing great excitement to the cricket fans amongst our family.
I'm about to stitch the last piece of grey onto the star blocks of the quilt I've been working on for months. Then I can begin to stitch all the blocks together.
Sneak peak of a book which arrived in the mail together, more to share soon.
Happy mail - a holiday postcard from a friend arrived today. I still love snail mail. :)
