"I've made a lot of special modifications myself..."
hmmm, one of my fave movie lines.
it's so *GEEKY* yet so versatile.
little clue: the movie is Star Wars (the one that came out in the cinema when i was nearly eight!) but WHO says it and WHEN?
ok, on with the Garden Update:
we've been living out here all Summer, but *sob* guess what? i have managed to nearly kill the gardenia which sprouted all sorts of fresh green foliage during January and even made these flowers for Heath,
and then promptly got aphids. the advice was to pour soapy water on the leaves and the aphids would fly away in disgust. *blonde* moi got all gung-ho and sprayed the entire bush with disinfectant. oops. it promptly dropped half of its leaves and needed the Big Rinse and Hair Cut. so now it's a third of the size and all twiggy and flowerless *sob*
that modification is *not* so special.
but this one is: Bulldog aka Grand Poo Bah Mason
and D18 have decided to concrete the pond.
and *look* at our Absolutely Divine Passionfruit,
which we're planning to scoop onto the top of a Great NZ Pavlova to celebrate when Greg and Em get here in a week!!!
