It has been a little busy here on our little tweet top of a paradise, frolic & feed, selection. I love our families ingenuity if something is needed or needed to be done, we use what we have or search & pray which in combination works very well, I must say.
Here is a perfect example of ingenuity.
In case you haven’t met this is my Mum. We spend the majority of our time outside, home life is pretty peaceful, we try to keep it that way, we cruise along at our own pace a little oblivious, no well, lets be honest, a lot oblivious to what goes on around us. I will in conversation from time to time get “did you hear what happened in town the other day”? to which we reply no! why? & often than not if it’s not a beautiful new life (a birth), a wonderful uniting of 2 people(marriage) or sadly (thankfully hardly ever) a death, information isn’t really that news worthy anyway, do you find that? what you hear isn’t really that news worthy?
Getting back to my original topic, sorry, I’m like that dog on the movie up “squirrel”.
See the rose in Mums walking stick, I love it. Mum gets out in the garden almost everyday its a family genetic thing I think, haha.. Mum had her hands full & we had been watching & enjoying this rose in the garden for a while, we try, just before the roses start dropping their petals to bring them inside so we can enjoy their grandeur & sweet aroma within close proximity. This one was a beauty, Mum with her hands full, found the perfect way to bring the rose inside, as what else are the extra holes to adjust your walking stick for. On closer inspection of Mums walking stick I must brighten it up for her, mmmm what shall I do, for such a clever wonderful Mum?
In our garden here’s a couple of pretty pockets producing, peripheral, prominent priceless, playful grandeur.
Above is the nasturtiums little cheeky happy flowers, they are happy aren’t they?
In the picture below, hanging above the nasturtiums is an abundance of the biggest passionfruit. These ones ripen to yellow & really just one is a meal on it’s own(they are as big as my hand,seriously). Its quite funny when you try to see how many there are, it takes your eyes a minute to find one & when you do they all appear, at the moment the count is around 50.
Passionfruit straight off the vine or make syrup, icing, jelly & cake, what a yummy conundrum to find oneself in, I cant wait to share.
Quite a while back & really it was quite a while, I challenged myself, to see what I could make out of rubbish. I built a? I’ll call it a living statue! When first constructed it looked like a twisted mess. Ok, so its still a little bit messy, can you see where I’m going with this? please say yes. The frame is slowly being covered with a native wisteria vine which produces the sweetest little bunch of mauve & white flowers. What I can finally trim off now, is actually fodder for our horses, I have to research if goats can eat it?(we try to plant things that are native & usually as result fodder for pets or their humans). After drought & smoke, ash filled skies, a little rain & “hi ho Silver away”, its off & running, the vine, that is, I would be a little worried if the whole thing started cantering around the yard, although it would be magical, wouldn’t it?
Last but not least, I am just letting you all know that this will be my last blog for couple of months. I have an over abundance of (never a burden always fulfilling) projects to complete & these will need my complete attention mentally & physically, from dawn till dusk. I will still be reading & keep in touch with my wonderful blogging friends. I look forward to sharing all the antics & the final condition of my new shoes.
If you are ever looking for great, comfortable working shoes. For my feet its DC, skate shoes, the last pair I had lasted for years & I wore them everywhere, from trips to town, to cutting down trees, digging out swales & mucking out pens & paddocks, they never failed me. Of course no ensemble is complete without leg warmers. Where ever your shoes take you, I hope its a wonderful world of always fun, endless joy & a belly full of laughter. I’ll sign off for now with the encouraging words of Winnie the Pooh
” you’re braver than you believe, stronger than you seem and smarter than you think”.
