So where did I trail my glitter over the last week?
You know it is multi coloured
and very bright aye?
At the beginning of the week Hamilton had a mini twister, and believe it or not TOF got this photo. We will teach him zoom on his phone next week! Baby steps with technology folks. Hope this isn't the new norm round here.
Seedless grapes are my new favourite fruit, who knew they were this good. Thanks America, not sure we grow seedless ones here, but I am now keen to give it a nudge if it is possible. Feel guilty about buying something from overseas when I should buy local/seasonal.
Yes the op shops got visited and I found a few goodies to take home. The basket will be great for taking baking to work or just here at home. Russian dolls for our Xmas Tree, but NOT UNTIL DECEMBER!!! The best table cloth put NZ as the best and biggest, most amazing place in the world. Two small Masks to go on the Wall of you know what.
Now best buy of the week has to be my old gates. These will go in my garden as walls/climber frames not gates. I love re purposing things.
I found this trike at our Dump shop, and promptly bought it home, added a basket, planted and parked it up.
Yeah I said I was on a roll,
my old trike got an additional basket too.
Actually I have been planting a lot of things lately but all is currently surrounded by protective netting to stop those girls of mine
ruining helping in the weeding.
Thanks for the eggs but KEEP OFF the garden. I should clip their feathers but I just cannot bring myself to do that, so netting it is.
So much is flowering at the moment it is hard to pick a favourite so I will admit to loving it all.
All the fragrant flowers take some beating.
I love having a vase of them on my bedside table,
with the most divine smell
wafting past my nose
as I snore as I sleep.
Sue W came and got me on Saturday to go to a plant sale down at the Hamilton Gardens. We were early so we went for a mini wander to kill some time. We went to the Kitchen garden, the stuff of dreams, reminds me of my Grandparents vegetable garden when I was a kid. Huge!!!
Some of the Scarecrows were in place for the competition the following day, we again were too early for that!!! I slotted in quite well I thought!!!
Back through the Tropical Garden to see if the Plant Sale was finally ready for us two.
And they were!! Scabiosa, Mini Geranium, Love in the Mist and a few others found there way back to mine.
Because we all know I am lacking in plants in the Garden!!!
Kitten watch took place on Sunday, OMG so GORGEOUS!!! Jaks girlfriend and I took the drive to visit the fur babies. Temptation, that is what kittens are.
But I have the dogs!
And Mr Big!
And lets not forget Toebee the most Tobilicious cat of them all.
Apparently I have enough pets.
