So how was your Christmas?
We got really spoilt. His and hers Christmas cakes from our lovely neighbour Rose. Mine by the way is the one smothered in marzipan. Yummo!
Yes, Dan really hated having to wear the hat and the tinsel. Just for the photo though.
It’s been raining this afternoon which has put a bit of a dampener on my gardening endeavours. Shame, as I have loads to do outside.
This is Grace our British shorthair. Yes she is wet and busting to get outside again.
I took this pic of Muriwai beach the other day – just before it threw it down!
A few days ago I finally poked in seed for my ‘4’ sisters garden, which is already looking great with some cucurbit residents (heirloom cucumbers & Jack be Little pumpkin).
The sunflowers are all through – with the corn being leisurely about germinating. Slowly but surely. Don’t forget as corn is wind pollinated it is ideal to plant in blocks.
I just had to take a picture of our cucumber, garlic and Egyptian walking onions (at last) which I sliced up for our Greek salad. By the way, those walking onions are delicious!
This wonderful mug was made by a good friend of mine. She is so very clever … check out her website www.fruitfireceramics.co.nz
Well that’s it. A very short post just before the end of 2013. What a fab year it has been. Wishing you and yours all the best for the New Year. Safe and happy holidays.
