Today was a perfect Spring day- bright sunshine, an intense blue sky and a very slight breeze to dry the washing. Oh my goodness- what a relief. I spent most of the day outside planting seeds and soaking up the sun- with no shoes on even!!!
And check out my fabulous cauliflowers- this is number 3 so far, each as perfect as the next with pretty much no help from me whatsoever. Ain't Mother Nature grand?
I also made a fabulous nettle soup from the nettles that grew on my plot at the Northcote Community Gardens, using Christine's super recipe- it's on the blog,you can see it here.

Kerry-Ann (my mail-art buddy) has a very special little boy, Tom, who was wondering why I kept sending stuff to her, and he was worried I'd forgotten about him- so of course I had to reassure him that he was unforgettable with a little customised art box. I painted the top with blackboard paint and lined the inside with felt, and included some goodies like pencils and chalk- plus Ben made a superduper mini blackboard duster especially to fit. It was so much fun to make, I hope he has as much fun using it!
