Over the last couple of weeks all trees near power-lines in our town have all been clipped and cut back by our local council and guess who's been running behind the truck collecting all the lovely big branches before the mulch truck comes along.
Always carry secateurs in the car with you, I say! To be able to get some of those fabulous high, green bunches from the top of the tree is such a treat, oak leaves, huge gums, grey gums and many unusual trees that I often look up at and wish I could reach. Foliage is just fantastic for my flower work and I absolutely love having different style flower arrangements in my home.
It's actually quite chilly here today in Bowral and I have just put our heater on for the first time in months and I also needed to find some thick socks for my cold little feet. I so love this time of the year.
