A Kiwi Christmas

I’m hanging up my gardening gloves and ditching that spade for a couple of days, time to concentrate on the Christmas Day festivities that we have planned. A special night with our neighbours … fun, food and some nice beverage, Toi Toi of course!

No garden ramblings this post … but a few local pics to share with you 🙂

Thank you for visiting Frog Pond Farm and for your encouragement and friendship. Andrew and I hope that you have a fabulous Christmas, relaxing holidays (I know what I’ll be doing 🙂 ) and all the best for 2015.

Needless to say Dan did not enjoy being dressed up for his Chrissy photo …

Happy gardening!
