Anything gardening @ Moving Along With The Times

 Too Cold Thursday to you all!

Wow the temperature down here in Oz is really starting to scream Winter!
Of a evening the kids and I are even starting to tuck the vegetable patch in (we cover it with a mozie net to help keep the frost off everything) and the kids think it is so funny to say 'night night' and tuck the vegies in lol

Talking about the garden!
That reminds me of  Mau 's challenge for us this week over at
Moving Along With The Times

It is Mau's turn this week and she has chosen ....
Garden / Flowers
anything to do with the garden

So what's in my garden this week? Frost and that is as good as snowflakes.  And pigeons,and they are nearly as good as doves.  Snow and doves screams Christmas to me so it is the way my garden grew this week :)) Can tell you this, I'm crossing a lot off my 'cards / must to do list' for Christmas so it is all worth it :))  I am also one of 'those' who loves Christmas whatever the time of the year.  If I had my way I would have Christmas decorations up all year long; hubby however doesn't agree with me on that one :$

So it is another Christmas card for me this week :))
And this one is extra special as it is for Granny and Poppy :)
No need to blank them out on this one as they wouldn't know how to turn a computer on to be subject to sneaky peaks lol  

This week we have all been playing with Stitchy Bear Stamps!
I pulled from my stash one that I have been dying to use on a Christmas card.
