Back in Canberra after almost two blissful, relaxing weeks in Melbourne staying with family, getting to know my little nieces better and catching up with close friends and their families.

It’s unexpectedly lovely to be back in one’s own space, sufficiently refreshed and invigorated and ready to take on 2011.

Just as unexpectedly, the tree in our backyard which provided such gorgeous spring blossoms, has yielded a veritable bounty.  Not a sakura tree, as I initially expected, but an apricot tree.  Its branches are heaving with the fruit which, I suspect, are just a few days away from perfect ripeness.   The birds have, surprisingly, left the apricots intact.  Given the wet, wild yet sunny weather over the last few months, I suspect our apricot tree is not the only one bearing beautiful fruit this season and the birds are having an absolute field day with what is on offer.

I’m looking forward to fresh apricots with my muesli in the next week!
