On the weekend we went to Vickery Quilt and Craft Retreat to do some gardening (a lot of mulching in preparation for summer). I was able to finish hand sewing down the last 40 cm of binding on the latest quilt which will reside in the house and am really pleased with it.
Here it is under the lovely burgundy Japanese maple in the front garden. I have never seen this colour outside a Japanese garden and we were very excited to see it come into leaf at our place!
And a close up:
Here are a few pics of the mulched gardens and new back native garden (more plants to come). Unfortunately it's hard to see the plants as they all need a guard to protect them from a pesky rabbit.
