A bitterly cold day, it was snowing on the Mountain and raining at our house. Melanie took this beautiful photo shortly after vegie group.
A good day for eating cake

Orange poppy seed biscuits (mine had no icing)
Munching on cinnamon sugar on fruit toast
I thought chewing would be the main form of morning exercise.
But, after much nagging from a very keen little boy "When are we going outside?" we braved the mud and cold.
Excess newspapers from the news agency, and a magic pudding pile of mulch.
My fruit trees are now beautifully mulched and weeded. Great to be locking in all that moisture and improving the soil.
Parking on grass is a perilous affair this month, it has never been so wet, poor Melanie fell victim to the swamp. A little mulch and pushing saved the day.
