My Favourite Tree

This would have to be my favourite tree in our garden, (the photo doesn't really do it justice) most of the year you don't even notice it but come Spring time WOW you can see these trees when you turn into our street they are just stunning. At the moment we have about 6 of these trees (if someone knows what they are called please tell me, we call them yellow trumpet trees, my Dad brought the seeds down from north Queensland.) they propagate really easily and I just keep putting more through the gardens.

I have been working on the "M" of my home but it is taking longer then expected here is a sneak peak.

My youngest son is 9 and just completed his first swapbot swap "kids ATC's" I let him loose in my craft room and this is what he came up with. I was so proud I think that he did a wonderful job and he did it all by himself.

Hope that you all have a great week and those of you that have the children home for the school holidays aren't going to crazy.

Hey Darling, long time no see, sorry it's taken so long to get here, just alittle flat out, yes screaming cherubs and all with school holidays being upons us, thank you for visiting and your kind words you left me too! I must say I have missed you, wow and you have a new look, love it, your banner is beautiful, sorry I don't know what your beautiful tree is but it gorgeous I'd be planting a small forest of them if they bloomed like that through spring. And your cherub has done a beautiful job on those tags, I would be proud too! I say frame them!

That is a lovely tree, we had thoes in Bowen and some bright red ones. I will ask my Dad what they are called.

IF you ever come up for the carnaval of flowers again let me know and we can meet up if you like. We had a great week on Saturday they have movie in the park at night so much fun like a huge drive in but you sit on the grass.

Hey Linda! I'm back from holidays and have tagged you, so pop on over to see what it's all about - will understand if you don't want to play!! Your son did a fantastic job with his tags, too - some things must be genetic! Bear Hugs! KRIS (Tag Along Teddies)
