I was checking out the latest from Moda when I came across these lovely fabrics. My first thought was easter, my second birds in general. We went to the botanical gardens today. It was a beautiful day in the gardens. Blue skies, white fluffy clouds. Lovely shade and green, green grass. We ate lunch and then lounged around. Ducks came onto the grass near us, Mr 8 desperately wanted to chase them away. I encouraged him to be kind to the ducks who were in search of their lunch when a magpie swooped down and chased them away! Later we heard the magpie warbling high in the plane trees. What a beautiful song they sing. It's a song that reminds me of camping and hiking. Of my various homes as a child and the homes I have lived in as a grown up. I felt happy to just 'be' while I was listening to that magpie song.
