This morning I bought this beautiful bunch of flowers at the Farmers Market. This is just how I love flowers to be, a collection of pretty stems bunched together fairly randomly. No need to worry about symmetry, or wire or any of the fuss that goes into so many of the fancy arrangements sold in florists. They're grown locally and they probably cost me a 1/10 of the price.
Later this afternoon I went along for a 3 hour shift to shovel horse manure at a fund-raising sale for some local not-for-profit organisations. They were so overwhelmed with volunteers that I hardly shovelled any poo except for the bag I bought for my new garden plot. Yes, I came away from today with a garden plot to my name in a community garden run through our church community here. I am so excited to have some soil of my own to dig in. There is already some thyme, oregano and sage growing which survived the winter. So excited about seeing it full of good eating things in the summer. Enjoyed the afternoon meeting people and chatting even if I was absolutley no use practically. Thanks Adam for your help digging!
