Early Autumn here...

It was lovely to see that splash of colour on the page. Thank you Kathi.  The forsythia here, is one of the earliest to flower in the spring and, for that reason, is always eagerly anticipated.!   It's autumn here ofcourse, and the days are shortening and getting cooler.  A suspicion of a frost one morning this week, but nothing too serious yet !

It's the 'calm before the storm" here !  At the end of next week the school holidays start and our two grandsons ae coming down from Auckland for ten days.  That sounded simple enough until the "other" grandparents (who NEVER invite them to stay...) made contact and suggestions about when they would like to see them...THEN the grand-daughter and boy friend got in on the act, and asked if they could come for three days on their way home from some cycling event.. THEN our DD emailed to say she had got "grab a seat" tickets to come down with DSIL for four days, because they felt guilty about not being with their son for his 16th Bday.. but "would we keep it a secret.".... DH and I had promised the boys that we would take them over to the West Coast. Now we can't and we can't even tell them why not !   I'm sure it will all work out well but, for a quiet living couple like us, it does look a bit hectic !

Enjoy the signs of Spring in the Northern hemisphere and, for those of us who used to be known as the Dugs  (Down Under Girls), make sure the wood shed is full.

Have a good w/end.
