Here comes the sun, lalala lala, here comes the sun, lalalalala, it's all right ....etc etc etc

Gorgeous, Beautiful, Wonderful sunny day, not a cloud in the sky, no rain, no cold, t-shirt and shorts ... finally! It's been a loooooooooooooooonnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnggggggggggggggggggg cold winter in Tasmania ... not horrifyingly cold, but just seemingly endless ..................

And now spring has sprung and we've finally had a day you can get hot and sweaty in while working in the garden, hallulujah!

And my, aren't we a stinky pair ... between Mr Tasmania lighting bonfires, mowing, and whipper snipping all day at the block, and me planting our first fruit tree (black cherry) then shopping, checking out the Wynyard Tulip Festival, then heading home to wash clothes, hang out clothes, pile up logs, pile up dead branches, rake, rake, rake leaves, plant out some geraniums, a coastal rosemary, and a purple daisy, and then rake, rake, and rake some more ... we're just not pleasant.

Mind you, I think we probably cancel each other out - wouldn't like to be someone walking in the door at the moment though ... I did roast lamb for dinner, and part of my method is to have an inch or so of water in the roasting pan while it cooks - fabulous - but tonight I chucked a whole head of garlic in too ... which steamed the entire house up (smells gorgeous) and made the gravy nice and garlicky ... but I reckon we smell there too ..

And well, it was all worth it.

And the sun, the sun, the beautiful sun - what a gorgeous day!
