The title is an ode to one of my favourite Sesame Street characters, Grover, he has such a happy and cute personality, I’d like to think I was like that too, but I’m not…first of all I’m female and thanks to our New Zealand summer I’m a nice shade of tan right now.
Well that’s two snippets of info about me another is I have the attention span of a gnat…hence the short and sweet posts, though I’m hoping that will improve with the blogging course I’m taking.
I really enjoy the new year…the madness of Christmas is over and there’s time to breathe, rest and relax. I spent the day with family and friends, enjoying a BBQ, chatting, laughing and talking about all the possibilities the new year can bring…
I was distracted by the fireworks exhibition at New Brighton Pier last night so today is a ‘twofor’ post…I’m not sure if that’s areal world but I think it’s a great description for two posts in one.
Now I know dandelions aren’t strictly flowers but I really like their ethereal qualities they remind me of the way the fireworks fall from the sky. One good breeze and those fluffy little seed heads will be scattered to the four winds.
oh no I’m behind in joining NaMo’s, it’s the 3rd of November already and I missed my goal of a post a day in November. Never mind I’ll just have to try and catch up, better late than never I like to say, sometimes good things take time to come to fruition.
i thought about what I would write each day and decided to take photos from my garden and then I could post at least a photo a day. Its the last month of spring here in New Zealand and I realised my small piece of paradise might struggle to provide me with sufficient subject matter so I’ve been busily photographing all the flowers I encounter in my day.
Another challenge I set was to feature a different flower each day which I promptly broke once I spied these pretty posies at the school fair
oh well some rules are worth breaking…
Finally I spied these lovely petunias which I really like the contrast of the white against the purple
P.S. I meant to publish this post yesterday but I saved it to draft by mistake…finding my way around the blog world by trial and error, just as well I like to learn by doing
Most Kiwi’s and Aussies know what the first Tuesday in November means it’s Melbourne Cup Day, the race that ‘stops the nation’. Synonymous with the race are the roses which are at their peak at Flemington Racecourse and in an omage to the day I’ve picked a rose growing in my friends garden. The scent is divine and the colour strong and bold
With the arrival of the royal baby I’ve been really annoyed with headlines which refer to his Mama as Kate Middleton. That’s who she used to be, her name and title have taken on a whole lot grander tone these days and I think the least the media could do is actually get it right.
