I know it's not good manners to leave your clothes in someone else's house, but I think that the tea party season may have quite gone to my head! So successful was the initial tea party, that Ruth in her magnanimity decided to host another party with new guests the following Thursday afternoon. I was invited too..to help! So, finishing up my gardening work, I popped in to the laundry at the back of the house to make a quick change into slightly more appropriate tea party attire, pinned on my pretty brooch & rushed off out the door. When I got home a niggling feeling crept upon me, now, where were my clothes? Oh dear, oh dear still in the laundry or did they blow away down the road!!
We decided the following day, while I was still squirming with embarrassment & giggling, that we should be "glad" that on our way home from retrieval of said clothes, we could have a lovely walk along the walkway by the Karamu Stream, an area under restoration & enhancement.
How do the willows always know to come out first? They don't ever just forget do they.
One of the best things about living where we do is being so close to "our" park...just around the corner. We walk in & through Cornwall Park hundred's of times a year. Walking through here again on Wednesday the light seemed just perfect...
Someone new to play in the garden with..
But Earnest was was having none of it, he wasn't feeling very peckish today.
Do you like my "new" teapot? It might be about as old as the lions in the park I think. It was so cheap on Trade Me...journeyed all the way from Gore, which is at the bottom of the South Island, some 1218 kms away! I'm sure with some lovely old roses in it, it'll bring a little magic to our next tea party.
When I grow up I want to look like this...these colours just make my little heart sing!

Lovely to see you my friends.
I hope the things that you love make your heart sing today too!
