Weekend Baby

What a difference a little sun can make, and what a great weekend it  turns into. Today was magic but i now fear that this tease of summer will make the rest of the winter seem longer....sad face. The sun allowed me to get down to the foreshore market and stalk my favorite fruit tree sellers and stock up. I am still expanding my "Food Forest" so i am planting for the future...these trees will still take a long time to get to proper producing stage. I bought nine new fruit trees...a bit of everything and one chestnut tree that i will probably never see to it full magnificence. As Bill Mollison says, "us gardeners plant like we are going to live forever". It was very satisfying getting them into the ground today.

I also managed to finish my "Mad Hatters" paining of the tea cups. I love that part when you finish and sit back and look...i always put it in a spot i glance at it every so often. This is also the part where it either grows on you or you see all the mistakes. I photographed the painting near my rocking chair so you can get an idea of scale and given you a close up so you can see the shadow detail...still i think it is next to impossible to give you a proper look at it...sigh...and i see stuff i want to change already ...sigh.

I hope your weekend was as productive as mine and bring on the sun shine...hasn't winter lasted for like three years already?
PS. Did you recognise me with the new layout?? xo
