Vintage Van Loveliness


Imagine my surprise this morning happening upon a photo shoot,
just up the road.......

Meet Lisa
and 'Vicky' (the very pink vintage van).
They are going to appear in  New Zealand Life & Leisure Magazine.(January issue)
How exciting!!

 

Lisa was kind enough to let me have a wander through......

Am loving that tea cosy!



 
I'm glad I stopped by.
What a pleasure to meet Lisa and 'Vicky'.

Spring is Here

You know that spring is here when the wisteria is in bloom. (Pictured above). This vigorous vine just about covers the entire pergola with it's fragrant clusters of purple flowers. 

Glowing in the afternoon sunlight is an abutilon (chinese hat) flower.

Dangling from a fork of a tree, I found an orchid I had planted long ago.....and now it is flowering, what a lovely surprise!


And lastly, a rhondaleisha shrub in bloom, with it's pretty scented pink flowers.

I love this time of year in the garden,
lots of pretty flowers
and lovely fragrance in the air.......

Father's Day



Hope everyone had a wonderful Father's Day today.
Pictured here is a much younger me with my dad.
I popped in for a visit and shared a cuppa with mum and dad this afternoon.
You can always find dad tinkering in his shed down the back.
