ROSE WREATH AND RAMBLING ECHIDNA

"You don't love to garden?" they'd ask incredulously, and I'd shake my head and not mention that what I love are cut flowers, because this sounds so violent and decadent, like when Salvador Dali  said his favorite animal was fillet of sole.

Sunday. Neither P:-) nor I had any commitments today so we just stayed around the house. P:-) decided it was time to attack my back paving. It had become very overgrown. He did a great job of clearing it. I helped a bit.


For various reasons this area had become covered in weeds. It is now weed free but needs some rearranging.

We spotted an echidna in next-door's  yard - just ambling along.

Later we went to Figtree Anglican Church for the evening service.

 I met a man at church who I hadn't seen for about 40 years. We grew up together in another suburb, at another church. I was surprised he recognized me. I would never have recognized him. I imagine he was about 17 when I saw him last and now he must be early fifties.

We called into P:-)'s house on the way home. The sunset was beautiful.


 The sky is such beautiful colors. This is often the case with the sunsets at P:-)'s place.


P:-) has given me some lovely flowers over the past 3 years. I made this wreath from roses that I had dried from flowers that P:-) has given me, and eucalyptus leaves.


I had bought a 50cent wreath base from a craft shop. It was Styrofoam, but covered in brown leaves. I just pinned on the eucalyptus leaves and then pinned on the roses. I am not quite sure where I am going to put it yet.
