Why, these are a few of My Favourite Things!

Julie Andrews sang about her favourite things in Mary Poppins, and let's face it, we all probably sang along with her.  Spring is starting to Spring about this part of the world which is making me extremely happy.  The colour is returning to my garden, YAY!!

So here are some of my favourite things,
what are yours?

Avocado and Manderines,
obviously not together,
but such great things to have for lunch.

Catching up with my incredibly talented friend 
and seeing her Native Birds.

Coming home with more clay treats to hang on my garden arches.

Walking around Lake Rotoroa on a sunny day with Sue Webber
and rewarding ourselves
with a coffee and this gorgeous view.

Baking cake,
in fact a Banana Cranberry and White Chocolate Cake to be exact.

Finding cool shit in the Op Shops,
all found over the last month.

Getting my grown up glasses,
 no more ready readers for me,
real prescription ones for work, home and driving!!

My abundantly flowering Kaka Beak!! 
A must for any NZ garden.

All the glorious colour returning to my garden,
the stuff that makes my heart skip a beat or two.

Being up early enough to get a glimpse
of the sun coming up through the trees.

Happy sleeping pets.

Dressing up Oscar!!

Dying the under part of my hair HOT PINK!

Moving, re-arranging and adding to my Wall of Whimsy.

Having Toebee on my lap when trying to use
my laptop most evening.

Enough sunshine to get Shadows!!

Treating myself to bought Tulips and Iris's
because I cannot bring myself to pluck the colour from my own garden.

Finally getting to have a guest room 
because my Day Bed arrived early,
so decorating has taken a back seat.

Totally enjoying this entertaining ball of fur and fun. 

Being grateful for having such a good life, surrounded by family, friends and enjoying every day given, and having help with staying BLONDE!!

See you soon,
stay happy, stay well,
and stay kind!!
