More bits of this and that in this post, I’m afraid.

Remember our new chooks.  Well, Mick brought in a tiny, dinky egg the other day.  The first, and to date the only, egg from our new chooks. Our old girl, on the other hand, lays enormous eggs.  They don’t even fit terribly well in the extra large cartons.

ShabbyBlogsDividerOI promised photos of all the blossoms that I put into vases.  They did open up beautifully, but sadly, they are now all finished.

While on the subject of blossoms, this is the flowering peach in my Mum’s front yard.  It really puts on a show each year.

When I was going to the supermarket the other day I saw this in the carpark.  I’d have loved to see the lady that had created it.  I imagine her to be a rather young crafty lady.  It really made me smile.

I even got energetic and made some biscuits last Saturday.  I should do this more often, as they are really yummy and oh, so easy to make.

And now for the weather…..

This morning we started out with a frost of –3.3 degrees C!!!!!  Not happy Jan!!!  I think that will put paid to the Angeline Burdett plum crop this year, as the tree is nicely in blossom.  Here’s hoping the later fruiting President plum will still be OK.  Fortunately, the apples are not in blossom as yet.

We did get up to 17.9 degrees C and finished off with the most glorious sunset.

Unfortunately, I’m guessing we will have another frost in the morning as it is already quite icy outside.


And finally, I’ve once again signed up for Chookyblue’s Secret Santa Christmas Swap.  Christmas just wouldn’t be the same without a present winging its way from some far off land.  I do commend Chooky for taking the swap on this year, considering how busy her life is at the moment.

Those first tiny eggs are so cute. We have added big duck eggs to our collection as well. Your blossoms look so lovely, mine have all been blown off. Thanks for the weather report, hubby is heading your way for a ride in the morning, I'll tell him to put his thermals on!

I love seeing bowls of homegrown eggs, the different sizes just make them seem more real. Your mum's flowering peach is spectacular! What favour biscuits did you make, they look delicious! We don't get frosts here but there have been some cold mornings, brrr.
