seems so very far away…lol. It has been frantic again this morning but I am making time to post the lastest photos.
Guess where we went yesterday……………………….
Does the photo give a clue? Yes the cemetry. Mum and I did what we call in this family – The Cemetry Run. Every few months Mum goes out and puts new flowers on the graves of her parents, brother and sister (yep Mum is the last of the line – well unless you count my sister and I and our kids that is), her grandparents and various uncles and aunts. Yesterday we decided to take a picnic morning tea as well and made it into a real outing.
The sad thing is that when Mum goes I doubt that I will spend the time putting flowers on these graves. I’m not saying that I would forget those relatives, but many Mum knew as a girl, they had all passed away by the time I came along. All I have is the potted history Mum gives me as we go from grave to grave. So yesterday I took the camera along and have taken photos of them all. I will scrapbook them I think, with details from Mum of who they were and what they did. Just so I will remember many years down the track.
If you want something really weird – guess where we ate our morning tea……….drumrolll – at the cemetry. We went to Lake Boga Cemetry (about 15 mins from home) where Mum’s sister and grandparents are buried and there is a table and chairs there – so we sat and enjoyed the sunshine and our cuppa. It was so peaceful. The only sounds you could hear where the birds and the click, click, click of the hydrolic pruners as the fruit pruners moved from tree to tree. The cemetry is surrounded by orchards and in spring it must be a picture with all the trees in flower. I really should go back then and take some more photos.
Sunday was spent putting the new shade structure in to the garden.
This is at the side of where the stream/creek/channel was going to go. Which has now been down graded into a very large garden bed by He Who Had to Contstruct It. The bed is even marked out with line marking paint – I just have to wait until spring for the grass to start growing before poisoning it all. A job I hate, but necessary if I don’t want weeds and grass growing out of control in my new bed. The stump in the corner of the photo is at The Hut looking back towards the house.
Nicola with her Cheese and Bacon Muffins that Kali kindly shared the recipe too. Nicola was so proud of herself as she made them with very little help from me. I’m proud of her cause she cleaned up her mess at the end of it all…lol.
