To toss or not to toss?
No longer needed for work so will use it somewhere in my AJC project!

From the foreshore, San Remo
The bridge linking the mainland to Phillip Island

Day 57

Monument to local fishermen, San Remo
Inscription on opposite side reads:-
This cairn is a monument dedicated to local fishermen from this port
who have paid the ultimate price
and lost their lives in pursuit of their livelihood.

Down to the sea
in ships they go
these chosen men of steel,
though mist & foam
and North West wind
is founding at the keel

So sail they must
each crispy morn
away from trees & sod,
the sea may own
their wind burned flesh,
but their souls
belong to God.

 Clever, funny & bent . . . my current favourite coffee table book!

Not happy Jan!
Desi turned feral & I didn't have a lot of options — either get the first bite in or run for my life!

Tuesday, February 23

  Washed up or just left behind?

Day 51

Clock Makeover . . .
 Once I stripped the clock fittings & removed the glass & hinges from the door I gave it a light sanding prior to painting & distressing.
Decided it needed a shelf so made one from MDF (2 pieces of 3mmm glued together.) Now hanging upside down on the main bathroom wall —
just need to find the right accessories to display in it; until I do, essential oils & burner it is!

Blackberries . . . yummy!
Came across these on our walk today — although a bit on the small side, there's plenty for the picking.

Day 46

Not your average zucchini!
 Each day we're surprised by the size & quantity of zucchinis growing in the vegetable garden.
Some have been considerably bigger than this one & have been equally as good
as the more regular sized ones.
Jars of relish, slices, muffins, bread, give aways . . . we've been well rewarded from our first zucchini planting.

Day 45

Old cotton reels from my small collection

Day 44

Multiplying every few days . . . 
The first one appeared Jan 10 (see day 10)
Within hours they go from tightly capped to open umbrellas — still trying to discover what they are!

edited:- after further research pretty sure it's a common "pot plant" fungus, Leucocoprinus birnbaumii, seen in house plants and greenhouses (organically rich soil & warm temp.)

Bottom: same deck, facing west . . . pea soup!

Day 40

Back Beach, San Remo
At 7, seeing a large break in the land, we stood in for it and found a strong outset of tide.
Many shoals were breaking in different parts of the entrance, so that we could not then see
where the channel was. I therefore landed to look for it, and found we were at the back of a long spit which we would not now round, as the tide of flood was beginning to make in strong; we therefore waited until high water, and then crossed the spit and entered a very extensive harbour.

Too many to count!
wasps were swarming everywhere in the tub of mint which has begun running up to seed.

Friday, February 5

Day 36

Topsy turvey! 
This tomatoberry (a new strain, berry shaped) is finally producing some fruit.
I wanted to try the upside down growing method but didn't want to invest in one of those plastic bag hangers that one sees everywhere on the internet.
Instead I planted up a hanging basket with basil (thinking it would be a perfect companion) but it hasn't taken off.

Stuck in the thick of it!

Exciting News!
Another precious little bundle due in June.

Project 365

2012 . . .
oh dear, only 78 days,
so that'd be an F?

2011 . . .
neglected after 85 days,
it's another F!

2010 . . .
all done,
it's an A+!

2009 . . .
8 weeks of layouts only,
it's an F for fail!

I live in a beautiful part of the world, with glorious ocean views, kangaroos bounding across the hilltops, assorted wildlife (echidnas, cape barron geese etc), birdlife & reptiles (not all nice . . . tiger snakes & copperheads —eek!)
