Just outside the backdoor in the wet this zygo cactus - Schlumbergera truncata ( aslo called Christmas cactus: lobster cactus; in the northern hemisphere)- is flowering brightly, despite the dull damp day.( damp is good.....we need to catch up with rain we didn't get earlier; and I may stay inside! )
If it had been fine I would have finished doing this.....
...walking the Kiwifruit rows to find the fruit the pickers missed. I park the tractor at the end of a block then walk both ways up and back each row with my gloves on and a big bag to pick them into. I have just half one big block and one small left to go. It always makes me sad that some really exportable fruit get left behind. Friends don't mind cause then I share them around.
Well ,why was I laughing at myself...well it was my own fault. I sewed and then unsewed ( yes you know the one with the quick unpick )Okay that was cause I didn't get it right. But the really funny one was the night before last sitting watching TV as I hand sewed some of those d....d butterflies. I loooked in horror as I saw I had sewn 2 eyes and some antenna to the bottom of one butterfly! Yes I could see the funny side ( end ) . I wasn't concentrating properly.
