Happy Leap Day!


I feel very lucky today. Why? Because we have an extra day in February this year! So what are you going to do with your extra day?



I celebrated, so far, with a stroll in my tiny yard to share with you some color and beauty.






Just remember, tomorrow is March 1st and March is the month that Spring arrives!
Tonight will will celebrate our extra day with a new wine! More on that later!
Happy Weekend!

Cheers!

Good to have an extra day - easy to let it pass without realising it is a bonus! Thanks- I will take the dogs for a good walk!

Hi Deb,
Lovely flowers, very apt for the start of spring. March 1st means that it's "officially" autumn here, and also the day of the Mardi Gras. But i won't have time to watch the parade this year.

Look forward to hearing about your leap year wine :-)

Looking good down there! The plants around here are also beginning to bloom, but not quite as nicely as by you.

Glorious photos, Deb :-) It was yet another rainy day here, so I made chocolate cookies when I got back from work - guaranteed to lift the weather blues!

Have a lovely weekend :-)

We can celebrate this day only once every 4 years Deb..so lets do that with a glass of wine and maybe a special dessert...you bring the wine of course..your choice.

lovely photos - I love the change of seasons and look forward to autumn down here in Melbourne!

you wouldn't believe it but the leap year stuffed up one of our databases at work - just for the day, luckily!
