I love these weeds. I guess they might not even be weeds. I am sure they have a name. It’s just that I don’t know what it is as these little plants came with the house.
They just pop up from nothing, and seem to multiply more each year. And they provide a spot of cheery red in amongst the greenery that turns brownery as a result of the combination of a hot summer and absentee owners for 5 weeks (that’s us of course).
I appreciate a plant that flourishes in such harsh conditions! Especially when it looks this good cut and in a vase (from the op shop of course).
New week. New holiday. Goodbye beach. Hello mountains … we’ve abandoned Rosebud and relocated to Mount Beauty.
I was home overnight. Long enough to do two loads of washing, a food shop and a big cull of clothes. We just had too much baggage! And then we jumped in to the car for the four hour drive.
Oh, and I also had time to find a spot for my little Rosebud memento. This cute tea canister. I bought it at Once Upon A Time. Which is one of those antique shops that has stalls. About 50. And the stall I bought this from was set up beautifully. Would you have be tempted?

I DO like a glass mixing bowl (or two). I keep a stack in my cupboard. And use them for … mixing. These ones remind me of my childhood. My mum had a set. The ones above caught my eye at Gumnut Op Shop in Ocean Grove. And I think they’d be super to use as salad bowls. Especially the top two that match. They are just so citrusy.
And then … I found this little orange one to match at Once Upon A Time in Rosebud.
