The reality, as I struggled with that dreaded piece of machinery. The weed-eater is so easy to start, but then it seemed to take off all by itself, the whirly bit at the lower edge crept closer to the wire, the stones, the concrete, and THEN, the automatic water feeder!!! One whack, and the whole water pipe piece flew away.
I was so lucky, no words from Hugh!!! so the first practical assignment is over.
Marks…A + for effort, A + for appearance, C- for workmanship !!! Jim, sorry no video today.!!
Last week, we went to Palmerston North then on to Levin. Levana Textiles have an outlet store there, with garments, and FABRIC… The merino was there in bolts,so many shades, weights and textures. I selected, put some back, chose more and have started to sew some Christmas goodies .This fabric is so soft, perfect for babies, toddlers, children and all us adults as well.
And in the garden, the lupins have a great variety of colours, and one little lonely tulip has flowered so late. A Pink Parrot Tulip. It had fallen into the dirt after we had the water sprinkler on, so the petals have “ Fairy Dirt Smudges”. The Dutch iris are in full bloom, gorgeous shades, the smaller one is that gorgeous dusky mauve/purple with that golden splash in the centre.The Deep Purple one must be a mutant, there are 2 blooms off the one stem .
