Flower play, raspberries, and fete preparations

 This week - little Bowerbird discovered that pansies float and called them flower boats.
 We made a lovely arrangement
Which she couldn't keep her hands out of.  I fought it for a couple of minutes and then decided not to worry.
After all, we have plenty.

There was even enough to do some painting with.

 Raspberries coming in by the punnet - about 3 punnets picked by the big Bowerbird today.  
My version of Nasi Goreng made from a home grown harvest of - puple cauliflower, broccolli, purple onions, spring onions, grated carrots, spinach, garlic, coriander, and chives. Such food pride, I only bought rice, kecap manis, and eggs.

  School fete preparations and long days working on an art/ seed project have kept me busy.

 Middle one made this lovely sign for the fete.

 More on the school fete extravaganza to come.


  1. 'Flower boats' are so cute. All you need is a little floating candle in there to cover them in a warm glow.

    Stellar effort on your fete creations, my hat well and truly goes off to you. :)

  2. You sure have all been busy - wish i could be there to visit your fete stall as it looks like fun.


In the spring, at the end of the day, you should smell like dirt.
