Welcome Autumn



Hello all! We are back :-) Looking forward to catching up with you all again!!

Today, I'm celebrating the start of Autumn! We seem to have had the longest, most humid summer ever!
Right now, its raining, and the temperature is cooler. We are all smiling here!
Yesterday we transplanted into the front garden this beautiful bromeliad (pictured)! It was in a huge pot by the front door, and didn't get much sun or rain. I checked it this morning and it looks so content in its new position, covered with rain droplets!

We have spent the last two weeks sorting through the silk lantern shipment, and can you believe it - I'm still not finished?! We have been really busy with brides and party planners - there's so many weddings this time of year!! Hopefully, we can get back on track now that Chinese New Year celebrations are finished!
Thankfully, Patsy has been a big help to me!

Happy Spring for all my Northern Hemisphere friends! Will be visiting you all soon :-)

It's still very very warm here in Malaysia and it's gonna be like this until April! BTW, that's a very beautiful flower. I don't think Ive seen this beautiful bromeliad before in my whole life!.

I'm wearing a hoodie! who'd have thought it after the hot weekend! I have a Bromiliad that someone bought for me in a pot when I was in hospital a couple of years ago. It lives on but it's and ugly spikey thing witha vermillion centre, maybe I should plant it out.

Thank you so much for your comment about my "blogger issue!" I sent a Help Request to their blogger help forum and someone already is looking into it for me.

So weird!!!!

(Beautiful flower, by the way!!!)

Hope all is well with you.

The plant is beautiful. It is amazing how different our climates are...we are buried under 2 feet of white powdery snow and on our way soon to ski in New England. I haven't been to Australia but made it close down to Kiribati and Christmas Island.
Have a lovely day

We are waiting for Spring... I'll use some of your tips to organize the inauguration of my new home!
