Personally I am glad for it means a day off from the orchard - a catch up day - maybe even a sewing day (I did do a little last weekend.)
See the raindrops on these beauties. R has just picked 7 and is applying the blow torch ( to get the skins off ) to them right now...to make capsicum and cashew dip. Yum!
The recipe said 6 but one is damaged on the back so needed using, so 1 extra. We have a bumper crop.
This morning I stayed in bed till after 7 cause it was raining, but when I got up I looked out the office window and saw Miss Polly and her 2 teenagers peaking things in the garden.
This is not a good photo...but I grabbed my camera without my glasses on to try and get the shot.
It is blurry when I enlarge it so please excuse poor photo. I wanted to show you the size the 2 baby peacocks have grown to.
Hoping to get closer I rushed outside in my nightwear without my glasses but to no avail they dashed down the bank and hid.
I was impressed with this container a vox box ( NZ made! ) that my flowers came in. It is a brilliant idea as flowers no longer have to survive out of water after the florist has arranged them.
The card board outer is assembled and a strong plastic liner inserted and partly filled with water. I visited their website and found the range quite extensive lots of bright colours and a useful looking A4 size tray. ( click on the product range to see that ). Florists must be so glad someone invented this brilliant idea. Really great for hospital flowers - you know the one when you take someone flowers and then have to search the sluice room for a container to put them in.
