with Thanks

This is a Gratitude Wrap (pattern available at Soul Mama) I made as a thank you present for Erin, at Toby's in Potts Point. A little thank you for all of the wonderful smiles and huge 'Good mornings' the little man and I recieved while we were in Sydney.

We potted these succulents last weekend, which we bought at the St Kilda Botanical Gradens and look out on the each morning when we open our blind. It's amazing the difference a few plants can make to your day.
We're now making plans for our vegie patch which we anticpate having completed towards the end of April. It'll be a big planter box full of delicious fresh vegies for winter stews. Any recommendations for planting will be greatly appreciated.

PS. at the moment I'm loving this blog, Orangette.

We've been in the process of setting up our veggie patch too. I've sewn some broad beans, sugar snap and snow peas, silver beet and cabbages. I really want to do some broccoli too, but being as we're almost into winter now it might be a bit late- I really should pick up a punnet of seedling and stick them in quickly! I've bought alot of my seeds from Diggers, who have a really good range of varieties.
Good luck with your growing.
