Is Winter Ending..........?

We have had serious amounts of rain this past month, after a dry start to winter. Now there is water lying where I have never seen it before, cascading off hills, flowing over roads, flooding creeks, drains and streams. But hopefully, we can soon say goodbye to all this wet - I can't help feeling this is winter's last hurrah. Or am I being too optimistic? Will have to wait and see.
Here is my paddock:


Meanwhile, I'm spending quiet hours by the fire sewing, painting and making music by turns. Not much work in the garden until things dry out a bit. Here's a new little girl, as yet un-named.




And here she is with her "sister", Millie.



I'm hoping things are dry enough for me to start planting things like potatoes and peas in the next week or two......fingers crossed!


It's quite difficult to take a selfie whilst playing the violin!

It is soggy weather here in South Aust. as well. Your little red doll is a dream, she reminds me of Red Riding Hood.

Here where I live in Poland I feel that autumn is approaching although it is only mids of August. You can smell it in the air, and the days are becoming slowly but steadily a little bit shorter each day. I don't like it...
The girl is a wonder.

In Italy we have a crazy summer : it rained and very hot day. We hope for a good September, but will also be the beginning of autumn...
Wonderful Doll!!!

How wonderful that you create fabulous dolls and yet play the violin as well. Hope things dry out soon for you and summer comes swiftly. Here in the states we are getting ready for fall and winter...our summer was not much this year-lots of rain.
