We have had such good spring days. It's been nice to have a couple in a row where I didn't have to do much but hang out in the garden.
I visited my new neighbour Janita and she gave me a box of macadamia nuts. I grew up with a sack of these in the corner by the wood stove and can sit next to a pile with a hammer, for I dunno, hours. Tap tap tap.
In the garden we are very excited about our new raspberries. Pene
has instigated the raspberry farm, and bought a bunch of canes back
from Tasmania for us to plant in the sprawling Preston backyard. They
are budding up all over the place, so fingers crossed for some summer
raspberries. Wild strawberries are in a tangle all down the side of the
house, so my inner berry farmer is pleased. The gooseberry is emerging
from the winter sticks too.
The lemon tree we planted out at the end of winter has gone
crazy with flowers, and so with the bees.
And lastly, that's me, loving little
Aurelian, a pleasure to have him sleeping on me, sweet baby.
