What is happening, in just a few weeks though, that's lovely is.. a tea party. My darling & I will have been married for 30 years on the 6th December. We have been talking a lot lately, as we always do, & reflecting on just how wonderful it is to have this time in life together..God willing, the chance to grow old together lovingly. We really wish that we could invite you all & that you could come to our tea party in the garden, sadly, most of you live way too far away. Here is the invitation anyway:

When looking for tea party images I found this via weheartit...what fun!! the flag says "Jugs of tea"!! : O
One such little person, namely Kaitaiki, joined me in the garden today & together we did a bit of topiary trimming & the like. I found this hairy lonicera for Kai to have a go with
we'd finished trimming!
I've had other friends in the garden this week too.
The blackbirds, thrushes & sparrows
all love the apples & pears that I've been putting
out for them each day.
I just wish that they'd leave my mulch alone & stop turfing out my plants.
I am amazed & delighted that amidst the everyday ordinariness & bric-a-brac of the op shop that there are still such gems like this sunlight soap apron to be found. $1.50 at the Restore shop. I love the 1000 pd reward for anyone who could prove that the soap had been adulterated in any way!
The lilac & wisteria really were just beautiful. Finally just finishing now. This one was found round at Kaitiaki's house.
Here they all are intermingled.
and of course the Lilac Fairy
& peeping over the pearl handles
I was soo delighted with this vintage fabric that came in the form of 3 curtains that I bought through Trade me recently. The sellers were locals but lived a bit out of town, so very kindly arranged for me to be able to pick up my purchase via their daughter who had just started work at a drive through cafe interestingly named (by the two male owners) The Horny Goat..quite an adventure : )
Isn't this the sweetest spring picture that I came across in one of my old Victoria magazines the other day
Fly well. Fly free this week my lovelies & remember to take time for you : )
