Well this weather really is lasting and its nice to see but the garden sure could do with some rain. I  know its not what we all want but we have to get some rain soon.

In 2004 Ron and I went to Australia and as you do did some panning for gold. Have a small amount  nothing like I would need to make me rich lol but there we also tried out luck panning for sapphire and got some nice sapphires I have started to have them set it white gold as I have 7 and want to give them to my granddaughters, Here is a picture of the first two I have had done.I think they are amazing.
