Greenery and Happiness

Summer is here. It is making knitting harder (sticky, warm wool against your palms is a revolting feeling) but all sorts of other things have come in to focus. One of those things is the beautiful gardens and greenery springing up in the sunshine.

Look what my clever sister has done with some old sewing machine drawers…


Such a good idea! We bought them at a great little op-shop in Onehunga, they were only $10.00. I would never have thought to do this with them. All this plant-life bursting about has made me rethink my no-pot-plant policy (due to black thumbs) and today Molly and I planted out some herbs in to pots for the front doorstep. She was very excited to be part of this ‘herb garding’ so I will have to do my best not kill the things before the end of the week. Day, actually.

Walking has been scorching but beautiful recently too. Here are some photos from the last week or so.

Not exactly a scene that supports a light hearted, happy mood when compared with these:

Maybe I am a summer person after all?
