Spent the morning repotting more white flowering plants. The backyard is looking a little bit lovely, actually. The serene colours of green and white are soothing to the eye, having just trimmed the tiny hedges of mock-orange, yesterday, and mowed the grass. The small flowering pale blue Lobielia groundcover is not coping too well with dry spells, and has died back in patches. Still, I will persevere with it as when it does do it's thing well...it is superb.
The recent dust storms we have had, have not done any harm to the plants. My husband has been about spraying the clusters of clover in the lawn and also trying to rid the cycads of those tiny grey moths/grubs that do so much damage to the new shoots. He gets full marks for being persistent with the treatments. But, it is obvious that there is some damage already done. Rotten little things, those tiny grey moths!

My hands might only be small, and not too elegant...but God made them creative. Hence, I will never have spare room in my house, due to all manner of craft items that have caught my attention. I find immense delight by being creative. I also love to draw. I just love creating. Having discovered etsy, I can create to my hearts content. My daughter, Jillian, prompted me to join with her in an Etsy store, and the two of us have been as happy as 'pigs in mud'! She is my kindred spirit...the woman I had asked God for when I was a young woman. I had waited so long, and wondered if He was ever going to answer my prayer when, one day, I turned around and found myself looking into her face....I just had to wait for my daughter to grow up! The other joy and delight that ranks high in my life, is our little granddaughter, Amazing elliana Grace. I could not have dreamed for a more enchanting grandchild. She always brings a smile to my face, and warmth to my heart.
a cup of tea made in a pot with loose tealeaves and a simple ham sandwich with real butter and freshly baked bread and freshly sliced ham. These two items always remind me of my sweet childhood days spent at nanna's house
miss you nanna
Just the knowledge that a good book is awaiting at the end of a long day makes that day happier.
