4,600 or thereabouts. No I didn't just keep counting but did them in 100s and counted that way. I could barely stand up right by the time I finished but am almost back to normal today. Usually they fall in a much more gradual way but the dry, dry, dry then sudden rain gave them a fright and they all fell down in a hurry. They are lying there in the carport to dry out but as it is still raining that may take a while. Yes I do wear gloves or my hands would be very stained.
Walnut total so far this year = 5011
( they still have to be shelled - oh my word! )
I am a bit worried that I still have not heard what if any classes I get into at Symposium in Taupo in July. Someone in our group who registered way after me by snail mail got hers back but the rest of us who did everything on line, have not heard. Have you ?
Some garden photos taken when it was not raining.
Pink Sparrieshoop rose
Late flowering little Zinnias.
Pink nerine that started flowering a good month after the red ones.( spot the bee )
Miniature cyclamen once in a pot but have been in the shady garden many years now. They have seeded and I have several clumps.
I have spent most of the afternoon doing P & Q Secretary's jobs ( boring ) So now maybe some sewing.
