Time For Tea – Day 8 Inktober 2018

On day 8 we interrupted our weeding regime and enjoyed the company of friends over afternoon tea at our place.

Freesias, a weed in our bush garden, graced the table.

Dust I Must – Day 7 Inktober 2017

The beautiful poem ‘Dust If You Must’ by Rose Milligan has always caused me inner conflict.  I really relate to it – here are some snippets:

Dust if you must, but wouldn’t it be better
To paint a picture or write a letter…

And

Dust if you must, but there’s not much time,
With rivers to swim and mountains to climb…

And

This day will not come again.

Yet I have to dust.  I want to preserve the aesthetics of my surroundings, to provide a comfortable and healthy place for myself and my loved ones – so dust I must – unless someone is willing to do it for me!

Day 7 of October the focus of my day was, no prizes for guessing, housework.

Coffee O’Clock! – Day 4 Inktober 2017

Coffee O’Clock! On day 4 of October a friend came round for coffee and gave me a break from weeding 🙂

To Plant A Garden – Day 3 Inktober 2017

“To plant a garden is to believe in tomorrow.”           – Audrey Hepburn

And that’s what I did on the 3rd October.  I planted a range of herbs, greens, salad leaves and cucumbers to enjoy eating later in the year.

Hooroo,

Kiss Me Quick is the common name for Red Valerian which is regarded as an environmental weed in Western Australia.
