Next weekend we are due to go skiing on Mount Ruapehu. This week it erupted. You can see from the photo above, courtesy of the Institute of Geological and Nuclear Science website, the blackened snow at the top of the mountain. The ski fields were closed for one day! Will have to see what happens next week before we venture up there.

I really should know better. At the front of the house in between the Magnolia and the Camellia, I have made my first attempt at a colour themed garden. My idea was to plant lavenders, purple alliums and dark dark tulips. Wouldn't you just know that one of the tulips would turn out to be a lovely red, orangey yellow. A beautiful plant, just not in the right place. I must remember to mark it before the flowers go, so I can move it to another part of the garden.

It has taken me months to get round to renovate the desk I bought on TradeMe. I am not sure I like my idea of using the Heart Shape for a door handle, I might get used to it. Pictures of Sewing room #3 will be available soon.
Not sure why Peter wanted to pose on the desk, but thought you might like to giggle at him too.
