In the mail, a walk and a waterlilly
This is the lovely give away that came in the mail this week from Eithna in Ireland, she has a blog called I think, oh dear I have forgotten a piece of blue, I thought it was a touch of blue but that was not it. Any way she makes lovely things and I love the little bag I won and all the extras, especially the little house, I love the patterned fabric on the back, or perhaps it is the front, and some very special cards. I love the way we are connected through the blogging community. Yesterday when we walked one of my favorite birds was patrolling the beach, a black oyster catcher, he/she was very busy up near the sand hills, but no sign of a mate, so perhaps there is nesting going on somewhere. I bought this little waterlily last year to put in a pot, I think it said small and pink obn the label, but isnt this a lovely colour? I love it, nothing wishy washy about this. Today it is hot humid and windy and thunder is grumbling away and poor old Max hates it. We had abut 1 mm of rain this morning, I think most of it has been to the north of us or over the ranges. Still we have had a little most days and the garden is loving it. Not a good thing in a way as I keep going out and either striking cuttings or buying new plants, today a chilli plant and a tiny yellow day lily, said on the label it was bred in Australia for our conditions but it is tiny and I think will look good in a pot somewhere. I am not potting today, I hope tmorrow is cooler and I will do it then. I have a rose to pot on too. I am busy sewing at the moment cushions for Xmas presents and I have a few other things I would like to do, perhaps bags for the two small ones to put their presents in. Photos when i have finished them.
