Went into town with Gaz to keep him company.He was quick today at the hospital and out early.Picked him up and bought some blue cod for tea.I thought I might drive him home if he was tired but he drove and I fell asleep :-/.
Planning on doing some planting early next week.Apparently a good time to prune fruit trees down south too and shift any that need a new home.
I have bought some Australian natives to feed the birds. lovely scrubby looking things with red flowers..their name escapes me. A white camellia with dark licorice green leaves,a greengage and a quince.There is an enticing bare spot of garden I am developing below the veranda.I have cleared out some grasses and ferns and am thinking sub-tropical fruity things might do well.Very exciting thought.I shall photograph it and record its progress. I am about to start on some small blocks..have bought an old dutch masters art book..so cool all the detail in the paintings..I am going to use them as a template to paint from.I will be painting blocks for a local craft gallery.Pictures of the peninsula and local area. Could be fun..I do need to start a bigger project to extend my paint skills.I get better too slowly, as what I am doing more frequently is limited and I am always in a hurry at the finish..I need to push through what i know - to what I don't know..the next stage.
Fire on, cat asleep ,Gaz puttering about.Hana at home working.
