Easy when you are a second hand shopper.
After work on Thursday I decided to visit the SPCA shop that I haven't called in on for a while. I found a TROLL!! I remember having these when I was a kid. The sparkly necklace and earrings beckoned me to take them home, who am I to argue. I also found the hot pink under dress, you know I love a layering piece of clothing.
It was a stunning day and a little frolicking in the garden was on. I found that one of my Poppies had POPPED! Stunning things.
There are baby peaches on the peach tree and the beginnings of a dam fine crop of plums on the plum tree. Glad they are both growing on the right trees!
Then I had an OMG moment in the garden.
Just look at my Gerbera!!
Lots of lovely things are starting to flower.
I have Black currents and Raspberries happening.
More Jam I think.
Who knew a Red Hot Poker could look so good at this angle.
I am loving my hearts hanging on the ladder.
It's beautiful isn't it?
It was all far too much for Oscar
who needed to be picked up.
The wind picked up and was battering the bejeezus out of the Poppie
so I rescued it and bought it inside.
That is the face of a person who has finished work for the week!
Friday was another lovely day. There was time mooching in the garden with the pets, and time doing other stuff! I like the quiet life, so mooching and faffing are big with me.
I found Maybelle in TOFs vege garden and had to evict her.
On my way home from being out at Webberville I stopped of at the Taitua Arboretum. I love this place. I didn't go for a walk because I don't really think a bush walk on your own is the safest thing to do. Even in New Zealand!
My girls would love me
if I bought home these gorgeous lads for them.
It is a beautiful place to visit and I really enjoy listening to all those Roosters competing in the Crow off that always seems to be going on. Some are obviously beginner crowers because they almost sound like their crow is breaking, like teenage boys if you know what I mean.
I filmed them for you!
It is always good to do a little bit of nothing every so often, I call it faffing and mooching remember. This weekend is a 3 day one, Monday is a public holiday, so me and TOF have 3 days to do some nothing if we please.
