I am grateful for ...

 slowly but surely crossing tasks off my horribly lengthy To Do lists with a red pen and ruler (seeing a red line across makes it so wonderfully final and satisfying)....

weekend drives into the Adelaide hills...

picnics and cups of tea on bitterly cold afternoons...

new growth in our garden ...

Hello tulip leaves and tiny yellow surprises!!!

... and lastly - my garden for teaching me to be more patient.  These leeks, which will take 3-5 months to mature, are by no means big enough to cook with yet, but I do love their new hairstyles.

More grateful thoughts over at maxabellaloves :)

  2. It might be cold but it sure is a beautiful place to have a picnic.
