We bought this Male Kiwi Fruit plant a few weeks ago and were told the Female plants would be in soon!
(He’s settling in well despite a couple of hot and windy days (hence the bright yellow shade mesh) but we won’t get fruit without Females.)
Still waiting . . . I wonder if there’s an R.S.V.P. dating service for plants?
Sounds like a good idea for a story anyway, especially now I’ve completed NaNoWriMo. I’m still in eager writing mode…hope it continues!
I wish you could smell the beautiful perfume!
I passed my NaNoWriMo target yesterday but after so much writing it was hard to stop
I woke at 3:30am and though I tried couldn’t go back to sleep, so got up and wrote some more
Hopefully, I will continue to add to the story over the coming weeks although at a much slower pace. Once again, a great experience and one I’d heartily recommend to anyone.
The kids from a horse training property around the corner have been industrious, collecting bags of manure for pocket money.
My garden loves it
In between spreading it all, I’ve been industrious too, and have less than 3000 words to write to achieve the 50,000 word NaNoWriMo target!
My NaNo Writing Buddy and PW subscriber Glenda passed 50,000 words yesterday – Great going! Glenda has been a wonderful inspiration to me this year and deserves a very big THANK YOU
Now I’m off for a shower then back to writing . . .
My zucchini plants are growing slowly and steadily and will hopefully bear fruit in a few weeks
My NaNoWriMo story is progressing in much the same way and with only a few days left I’m confident of reaching the 50,000 word target in time!
I love watching my garden and stories grow . . . but not the weeds or my waistline
I often wish I had a writing tap I could turn on at the most convenient times
Fortunately, my NaNoWriMo story is flowing steadily and I’m on target
We’ve had some very welcome soaking rain over the past few days, ending with a sun shower late yesterday afternoon
We saw this fascinating tree not far from our home and the huge slab of thick bark that’s fallen off.
My NaNo story is still going well . . . I’m on target and although I will have to go back and strip off a few layers here and there, the basic stuff is solid
I feared this year I would struggle but it has actually proved a very welcome and productive distraction!
Cup Day was an appropriate day to visit Nagambie and see the new bronze statue of Black Caviar beside the lake.
We were not alone – the area was crowded with sightseers taking photos and many people happily standing in the garden while their friends snapped them beside the very impressive statue. It made me think about how selfish we can be as human beings; impressed enough to want a photo but with no respect at all for the work that also went into the garden
Beautiful red Bottlebrush (Callistemon) are blooming everywhere
My beautiful variegated Liquid Amber hasn’t committed a crime . . . it’s for his/her own good
