Things were progressing well for the April sale, despite the lack of rain and the hot humid weather when a calamity occurred. Keith at the beginning of December fell and fractured his humerus and 4 vertebrae in his lower spine so production stopped. It has commenced again, but more slowly and the sale will go ahead. Maybe not as huge as usual, but still pretty big. The photo was taken on his first day back at the potting bench when his frustration at not being able to do much was showing, hence the caution sign.
We have a continuing domestic dispute here at Parklands Avenue. Keith has decided the perfect spot for cultivating the oxalis triangular is on the island bench in MY kitchen. One or two were OK but they seem to multiply daily - soon I will have no work space left. There is a solution of course - dine out.
We were thrilled to be nominated and award a community service sward for our Huge Plant Sale. Although we both get a great personal satisfaction in preparing for and running the sales, it was nice to get this wider recognition. I suppose everyone likes their nine minutes of fame!
We had an interesting visitor to our garden recently. He first appeared on the verge, but the next couple of days ventured into the garden. Then disappeared and has not returned since
