A new dog. A wonderful old soul . He has been here now for 5 months and has gotten a lot smarter generally. “Ginger” is essentially 10 and is another working dog cross (is there any other kind ?!!) …kelpie/cattle/rough collie. He loves his new home endlessly after way too long in rescue places. He is both as rough as bags and as gentle as a baby. I guess his life has made him like that. He has the saddest eyes and has vast amounts of fur to be removed for summer . He loves and is loved
I am truly done with the myriad of creatures around here.
This one was a close call
having spent time weeding the feral native/and otherwise violets out of the back garden where they are literally trying to strangle natives and other stuff and having spent time removing a pile of vines of some kind never seen on any other land i ever owned and having spent time cutting back the ill advised planting of the passionfruit vine………..i got help to cut these pretty hydrangeas. i never get pink but now i have…..and i suspect it is from the run off from the tiled balcony repair that occurred earlier this year amidst a lot of drama.
anyway……the flowers were beautiful before the terrible heat hit them.
they are still lovely …just not as they were.
the bottom pink one is my favourite i think.

i looooove this house. It is called Newton Hall in the small village of Newton Kyme in the UK. My sister has traced it as the house where our great great grandfather was a butler back in the mid 1800’s

these soaps were done after discussions with other soapmakers about techniques. I added yoghurt …
which i have not used for years. Makes a great soap.
Again …Lavender with a side of strawberry and cream….the very last of that particular fragrance
the multi colour soaps are part of a donation i did for a charity and are all sold.
they were lavender and very popular
