Unfortunately the day in Queenstown was not a sunny one, a friend came with me, and the first stop was at the lake in Kingston for a cup of tea.
Lunch in Arrowtown,a flask of hot soup and sandwiches
lots of autumn colour and an enchanting little cottage nearby
A walk along the creek bank was a delight of
autumn colours, natures palette is so warm and bright at this time of year, her last fling before the winter.
The haws on the Hawthorns seemed much larger than the ones on the hedges at home, we picked some to put in vases .
The flowering currants were laden with pretty blue berries,
Thursday we had a lot of flowers in the shop,
lots of laughs and busyness, it feels good putting together flowers that are going to give others a lot of pleasure. We have a website now too www.stemsonstandrew.co.nz. The other thing that happened this week was the demise of our ancient computer, so new computer and I am still finding my way about and getting used to the differences. The words Old dogs and new tricks , spring to mind!
Mothers day morning opening parcels is fun, from oldest daughter a box of treats.
a n exquisitely stitched pillowcase with some of my fav things,
Card making papers, little handsewn pouch, and nourishing homemade handcream for rough floristy hands,
And the best view of the bathroom this week
and now its off for a seaside walk and a visit with friends for the afternoon.
