April- no joke

I am astonished that we are a quarter of the way into 2017. Slowing down and being in the moment is what I am trying to do but still the clock ticks and the days seem to pass by so quickly. This past month has been full. We have had to to and fro and do quite a bit  but it is all settling down now and back to routine. Perhaps I will be blogging regularly or perhaps I am just an April fool.

 In the garden, the dahlias are truly only starting to shine now. Very late for them. In the past I have entered them in our local show which was last weekend. None were right then (and I wasn't home anyway) but they bloomed lovely from Monday. The rain we had was probably the key but I like to think they just didn't want to be judged.

 Chillies are excellent this year and by excellent I mean HOT. They look quite spectacular too in my opinion. The Aji Yellow above are mild in comparison to some but still spicy enough to add a kick to some dahl or curry.

I'm still planting the winter garden. Trips away, rainy days and some family health related transport duties have put me behind just a little. Of course the 35℃ we had mid-week means I'm not behind at all, the plants must feel like it is still summer.

Anyway, it is school holidays now and that is always great.

Bye for now,

Don't I wish it was the school hols! I just snagged a day off today... first day off all term. Two more weeks till hols here but I'm lucky with 2 x 3 day working weeks - I think I'll cope, but a whopper of a hideous essay to do now...

It looks as though all is well in your garden!
