Christopher is also in the middle. He is a venturer scout. I would love to cut his hair, but he is a teenager and thinks it looks great! The whole family is a scouting family other than Hamish, who is still too little, so he stood with me to watch them all march past.
These beautiful Xanthostemon or Golden Penda trees are used extensively around Mackay as street trees. I am planning to put one in our back garden when the repairs are all finished.
They flower several times a year and attract the birds and insects. The flowers are these gorgeous large pom poms.
The mother of a friend of mine died a few days ago. Clare loves reading so I am sending her this bookmark which I decorated with the flower stitch foot. I love this foot but I need to practise using it much more.
