While there I visited part of the Yarra River that I had not seen before - Pound Bend near Warrandyte a suburb in Melbourne. My Brother-in-law had cycled there from Blackburn as a youngster and we went back there to visit on a beautiful warm day and I took some photos. It was an interesting place:
A tunnel cut through from one side of the bend to the other to divert the river
Looking at the water rushing out of the tunnel - a lovely spa!!
While I was in Melbourne I helped my SIL move house - 50 years plus of living in one place had to be packed up and moved to the new (smaller) town house. We managed it!
There was a garage sale of the stuff left over, and what was not sold was given to the Salvo's. An interesting time......this was towards the end of the selling period, but there was a steady stream of buyers all day.
Lots of National Geographics!
Got home to find that all the Christmas Lillies had flowered at once! Beautiful smell in the lounge room and the vase is so full! I remove the stamens so the yellow powder does not get everywhere.
I will be crafting this week - so will be putting up some photos. I have just spent three days cleaning up my working area and rearranging things to fit a bit better. I have bags of off-cuts for a local primary school, and a New Years Resolution - do NOT keep scraps of cards and paper to the same extent! Lets see if it works! Thanks for following this ramble and keep safe with all the weather conditions in the world threatening life and limb.
