ansies A friend came over yesterday to look at my bowls and put in an order I gathered what I had from around the house for her to look at, it was like they had a little party together then all went home again. Fun to see them all together. 2d

ansies A fun weekend at home weaving and gardening. This little one was a step away from what I've been doing lately. Enjoyed the change.
Mark just got home from helping a friend all day build their new bathroom. We had storms here last night, he told me a 2 year old was killed by a tree falling on a house. Life is so precious and fragile. Just being here is a blessing. sending love out there

  •   string_harvest Ahh! Nice! The variation in the dye turned out alright. Such sad news though. Xx 4d
  •   ansies Yes I know, had second thoughts about mentioning but it's reminder isn't it? So sad xx @string_harvest 4d
  •   gennybird Lovely @ansies yes windy rainy night. I heard about the tragedy at the Patch... So very sad for family. Lovely gardening weather. Healesville market. Always go. Big planting day today - life so precious. 4d
  •   ansies @gennybird hi gen, terribly sad yes. No words. Cooler week ahead, I was prepping a veggie bed. Need to plant. I always forget about the markets over your side of the valley. Is the healesville one just once a month? I want to go to the Yarra glen craft market.. Been to that? 4d
  •   redagape That is the saddest story. How tragic for the child's family 4d
  •   gennybird Healesville market is the first Sunday of each month & I have a feeling the Yarra Glen one is on the same day... Haven't been to that one. Always go to the Healesville one. Great for plants, & old stuff. Called the flea market. 4d
  •   ansies @redagape oh I know Amanda, I'm so sorry for sharing and making everyone sad. I'm cuddling my daughter a little bit more today 4d

ansies What is it about the ocean?
The vastness
How it humbles you
The rhythmic sound
The light glistening
The slivers, blues, greens
Nurturing
How it seems untouched and whole
Undamaged lapping the damaged
Stroking our fears
Soothing our minds
A constant that is never stagnant
Each tide brings new forms, patterns, fragments

But the rhythm the rhythm
Like a heartbeat

ansies This little guy RIP #firetail 2w
  •   ansies @gennybird I think it may have flown into a window. Not sure, it was on the front porch. It may be a juvenile and not familiar with the house. No blood or anything so I believe it was a quick death. It was so light and soft and the colours are just so beautiful. 2w
  •   gennybird Yes that happened here too with s juvenile parrot. They are amazingly soft Annie I agree & feather colours wonderful. I have not seen a fire tail before. I did see 4 Gang Gang parrots today in our trees. 2w
  •   ansies @minlux 2w
  •   ansies @gennybird B and I went to the sanctuary afterwards and we mainly looked at birds. Love gang gangs 2w
  •   gennybird Oh lovely thing to do with B. Are you members @ansies. We are & I so enjoy the birds there. Especially the woodland birds. There is a Gang Gang there, beautiful finches & Satin Bower birds to name a few. 2w
  •   ansies @gennybird no we aren't members but will probably do it this year now that Billie can appreciate the place more. Did you know i worked there for nearly 5 years? It was@nice and quiet there yesterday. Ps. I've kept this bird in case you wanted it..? 2w

ansies Billie has been making these paper cut out creations lately. I love it when her creativity moves up a level, so interesting that she now knows how to cut these wing shapes and little toes. She was worried that she did the beak the wrong way so she drew one going upwards as well. Her drawings have been interesting also. Goes to show how having a creative break (which she did for about a month) can open things up again. #4yearsold #kidsart #adorethisowl 3w

ansies Finally time to sit down and have a coffee and a weave. A bushfire just started 5 km away so I may only be sitting down for a bit Thunder rumbling and obviously lightning here and there 3w
  •   deborah.brandon That's so frightening Anna, that storm was frightening! ... the rain really came down and hoping that helped! #thinkingofyouhun xx 3w
  •   deborah.brandon PS that basket hun 3w
  •   ansies @deborah.brandon thanks sweet Deborah, loving the rain 3w
  •   gennybird Thank goodness for the rain @ansies all good now for you? But awful to be so anxious with threatening possibilities. 3w
  •   gennybird Your basket looks so beautiful @ansies 3w
  •   ansies @gennybird thanks Genny, yes not nice being anxious. We have a sprinkler system on our roof for last resort fire situation, so in low to no winds I feel ' ok' here if we can't leave. Would rather have a bunker though. Xx 3w
  •   gennybird Yes the bunker idea sounds better @ansies I think the sprinklers would be great to leave on as you drive away to a safe place. We have pipes running around our verandah for ember attack but if extreme conditions we would turn on & leave. Horrible thought though. home sweet home 3w
  •   ansies @gennybird our sprinklers are there for when the front is passing through. The idea is to put them on when embers start and then turn it up and retreat inside. It lasts as long as the water lasts from the tanks.. So not forever! Never leave when a fire is close Genny, your house protects you. 3w
