Honestly these days I don’t have much to say. I sit down at the computer and I’ve got nothing. Nothing. I mean there is plenty going on. And I’m dealing with some late night antics from 2 of my little ones that is taking me right back to life with 3 under 3. My 2 and 4 year old are partners in crime and we’re talking drawing on the walls, running away from me at the shops, dropping things in the toilet, being quiet for just a bit too long, unravelling the whole toilet roll and sneaking out the cat door and coming back in…and going out…and coming back in. And they laugh at each other so much. So life is busy and my diary is filling up with so many school events. And while the house is chaotic the garden is so beautiful and green right now. This is our first spring/summer in the house and I know it’s going to be beautiful. Oh the gardenias! As soon as you walk out the front door you get a good whiff of these beautiful big flowers….and out the back door too. and thanks to retro daddy for fertilising everything for me.
And flowers are such a great way to practise your camera skills….they don’t move like little people
And something not in the garden but still in pots are my all time favourite flower, yep you guessed it. Hydrangeas. Love them
And then for a total contrast in colours when I was picking up milk and bread I spotted peonies at woolies that had to come home with me. I’ve never bought them before and what a beautiful welcome when you opened the front door.
And the next morning they were much paler and made a lovely backdrop as I headed out to a high tea. And then before I knew it the petals were all falling off and that was that. End of my $20 flowers. I think they lasted friday to tuesday at the most.
Anyway that’s all from me. Sharing pictures of pretty flowers is much more exciting than laundry piles, a broken dishwasher (good thing I’ve got years of practice hand washing dishes) and what I’m having for dinner tonight.
