Sue has a twin brother and sister. It was their birthdays on Friday. We were invited for a drink to my 67 year young brother in-law's home. At 8.00 pm it was still reasonably light. I wandered out into their garden to discover the most amazing growth of green and colour. Their garden has no real structure (to me) but comes together as a bit of a wonderland. Everchanging with the seasons.
|I don't know what this plant is but if we are lucky, they might leave a comment.|
|Their garden is occasionally decorated with the odd piece of whimsy.|
|For whom the bell tolls.|
|Down the side of their house a natural micro climate offers a perfect spot for these ferns.|
|King prawns for dinner before cooking.|
|They were very yummy - and filling so the main course was reserved for Sunday's night dinner.|
Cacky looking photo, but tasted really good. Leon was still hungry after the prawns, so I made a quick caramel sauce with brown sugar, butter and a little cream, and warmed some mango and strawberries in it and slathered it over a couple of fluffy, American style pancakes.
|After dinner we sat down to watch the Kevin Costner movie "Field of Dreams""|
Build it and he will come..
How I love sports movies, they always bring a tear to my eye.
|And I also had time to mow the lawns - well it's not a huge job as you can see!|
|We had rotting weather boards.|
Strangely it's not our 80 year old boards but our 20 year old ones needing replacing this weekend.
I hear the haunting voice saying, they dont build them as the used to. How true.
|Beetroot and goat's cheese entree|
|Sue started me off on the pasta making but then I took over.|
I think this could be my future role in kitchen life.
|Ït was so much Yummmmmm!|
Salmon and pasta.
Back to the salads during the week after all that cream this weekend though!
