Day 23.

 This chrysanthemum started off inside the house as a pot plant last year and was later planted out in the garden under a cherry tree. It is in a very windswept place but is  struggling into flower. I love white and green ones particularly and strangely I quite like how they smell.

Here's a peek at my sewing project. So far all cut out and 11 of the strips joined. My eyes are delighting in the colours so far. Mostly batiks. Progress is a bit slow cause I keep having to do other things like pick up more feijoas. Raewyn I too have found some frozen ones from last year. I prefer them raw but R sometimes persuades me to make a crumble from apple / feijoa mix.

 Today I walked for 45 minutes with my umbrella up. Not cause it was raining all the way but because the catch that keeps it open is like a mousetrap and suddenly shuts, so once it was up I kept like that. In some places I had to point it down into the wind to stop it turning inside out but never mind seeing all the neighbourhood Autumn colours makes me happy( and I don't have to pick up those leaves - just the ones that can't be mown up in our place ).  
 In all that time I saw one other person!

Pretty flowers, I like your batiks, they look great together.

It's amazing what one discovers in the freezer at times! Apple and feijoa cake happened the other day - that was pretty nice...think I might bake some more of those types of things for the freezer as I have so much unprocessed fruit in there already!
