The sun is shining and it looks like a beautiful day is ahead.
This morning I went out to have a coffee on the deck at about 7.30 and the sun was just streaming through the back corner of the garden. I love the way it streams through the Silver Birch.
I just love the red of the branches of the Japanese maple and the red on the Weeping Lilly Pilly behind


I took this photo of Amy yesterday afternoon.
She is looking sooo... tired.
She has finally packed a bag to take to the hospital.
The nursery is ready.
Looks like she has dropped a bit so here's hoping it comes early for her.

I love this time of year too! Your daughter looks ready to go. I was going to say that in the last photo she was still pretty high, but this one looks lower. Bring on that baby!! Let me know when she has it. I am betting a boy (but time will tell!!).

Japanese maples have always been a favorite of mine and I love to plant one where ever I move.

Alison your garden looks beautiful.
Probably better if Amy doesn't have the baby quite yet, although you don't think so at the time you need that break in between finishing work and looking after a new baby, let alone actually having it!

That Japenese Maple is so pretty I love them too!

Your daughter does look like she's dropped, I bet she is tired and ready to bring that baby into the world :)
