Pretty little thing

I got this little plant from my brother for my birthday. Isn’t the pot pretty? Isn’t the plant delicate and sweet and just begging to grow? So much promise…so much potential.

It’s called a Burrawang. Sounds good to me!
Don’t you just love this time of year? The buds just about ready to burst, new leaves ready to unfurl for the season, the sun a little warmer, days a wee bit longer. All I need is to smell my first freesia and it will officially be spring for me. Somehow I think this is going to be a gooooood summer.
Hope your weekend is full of spring delights!

    Cat! The things you learn. Thank you for my lesson today…

    Grug is a fictional character appearing in a series of Australian children’s books by the author Ted Prior. They were published between 1979 and 1992 by Hodder & Stoughton, Australia and have now been republished by Simon & Schuster, Australia from the 1st of June, 2009.
    Grug began his life as the top of a Burrawang tree (Macrozamia communis) that looks more like a Grass tree (Xanthorrhoea). Resembling a small, striped haystack with a face, he is fascinated by the world around him and solves everyday problems creatively and without fuss. When dancing instructions are too difficult to understand, Grug invents his own dance and calls it “The Grug”.
