Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2 Sketch # 87 with A Day For Daisies

Good morning everyone and welcome Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2.
It's Kathie here from New Zealand and I'm your presenter this week of our new sketch.
Well as most of you know I live in the beautiful southern hemisphere, and sometimes we really don't know how lucky we are when it comes to the weather.   Since our return from England and Europe in January, 99.9% of our meals we have are dining alfresco and making the most of our Summer and Autumn weather today the temperature was 21 celsius not bad for an Autumn morning.

Let's get on with our sketch and last week's winner and Top 3

The winner.....
