Spring Time

Spring Lambs and Blossoms

One of the girls at work brought some young lambs in this morning. It’s part of diversional therapy for the residents in the aged care facility where I work. They get a lot of pleasure and enjoyment out of having animal visitors. I think everybody enjoys it. I took time out after my work was finished to go and get my camera and take a few shots. I must say it was quite difficult because they wanted to eat my sleeves and my camera strap and they would not keep still. Apparently one of them was only two weeks old. 

I think these lamb are absolutely gorgeous and I was thrilled to see them this morning.

On my way home I stopped to admire my neighbours beautiful tree. The blossoms are already dropping off of it as it flowered very early this year. I took a photo as it has always been a favourite of mine. It takes me back to when I was in primary school as these trees lined the street that our school was in. All sorts of memories come to mind when ever I see these trees in bloom. While it’s nice to take some time out to remember it’s also good to think about what Spring can mean. Spring is the time to rethink, renew and start doing all the things we couldn’t do during the long cold Winter. 

I love this tree. It reminds me of my childhood


I came to Australia with my mother and sister Vanda in 1966 from the UK aboard the Sitmar liner Castel Felice. We settled in South Australia I lived in the western suburbs of Adelaide for most of my life. I became very interested in retro items in my twenties. It was always a dream of mine to have an old house and fill it with retro items. I have done it twice now. My main interest is collecting old things. They do not have to be valuable, only interesting. There is something reassuring about old retro items. I have all sorts of things including doll related items. My other interests are my beautiful pets, art and going for drives to who knows where. I also enjoy board games or doing a scenic jig saw puzzle on a wintry afternoon by the fire. My goal is to travel a bit more as there are some places I would love to see


  1. Those lambs have such sweet expressions. What a nice treat for the old people especially as a lot of them probably came from farms. The DT people there do a good job. Love the tree. I always remember that street of trees and how they would blossom in spring and then the leaves would turn red. Never knew what they were called but I loved them too.
