Here are some pictures taken over the last week or so around home. So I can inlude it early for Tootsie's Friday Fertilizer prompt.
First one above is of a pot I planted with verbena just because I like them and they are pretty. Now they just have to grow and fill up the pot.
I found this flutterby in the netting on my swing in the back yard and put it amongst a collection of seed pods and lavender I have in the hallway. Callistemon, Shirley poppy and she oak pods.
My hairy son, Michael with Rufus our doggie.
Tomato berries, prolific & tasty little fruit.
The apple mint in flower.
More verbena, same pot.
Mother Maggie. My untidy back yard. You can see in the background the swing which was my Christmas present. I made a tent to cover it and now I call it my cubby hole. It is nice to sit out there and have a cuppa, and read or do my crossword puzzles.
Mother Maggie. These are very tame and they watch for me to come outside to see if I have any tid bits for them. She takes bread out of my hand and comes with her 2 babies who she is teaching that some big bipeds give you nice things to eat if you make friends with them.
Fever few flowers. These originally came from my uncle Bill's house and they self seed easily, maybe a little too easily, I have had them popping up in the last 3 houses I have lived in.
Our computer has been offline for a few days an so I am not participating in Sunday Scribblings this week. I have been a bit down and can not think of somthing positive and nobody wants to hear me whinge so that is that.
My cousin's son has moved to Canberra to go to university and stayed here for a few days before settling into shared accommodation nearer to the uni. That was nice and he is good company, or was he just being kind to a silly old lady.
School holidays finished at the end of last week so back to regular work for me. Also back to cleaning the two houses I do.
Had take away pizza last night for tea, trying to diet again after my Christmas naughtiness, all I ate yesterday was salad for lunch so the pizza wasn't too drastic a lash out. I have lost a few kilos.
Junee poker run is on next weekend so I will have the weekend at home by myself. There is an opera by candle light thingy on in the park on saturday, freebie, I might go to that.
Ah I am so boring.
