Blooming marvelous!



My garden is blooming and I love it!

This white sweetpea I call 'heritage sweetpea' because it came with the house. It gave me such a beautiful surprise the first year I moved into this house to find it blooming in the garden, resplendent in its whiteness.

Each year thereon it has given me such joy that I look forward to see it blooming.

Light the barbie!

On Friday we kicked off the weekend with drinks at the Florence Arms and listening to Fox Elipses in the background (or the other bar). But apparently his songs were depressing, so just as well that I could only hear bits.

This was followed by a barbecue on Saturday. It's lovely to share a meal with friends. This time we got the timing right too, so that the food came in stages and the conversation flowing between sips of wine.
