Some purple things in and around our garden today …
My new ballet flats from Tesco, 745 forints (NZ$4.06). Score! (Nice toe cleavage?)
Our ‘lawn’ is full of violets (among a cornucopia of other weeds), which are also purple, although eight months away from flowering right now.
Maja’s new (old) balance bike, from a friend who owns a bike shop in town (cheers Gyuri!)
It’s a couple of centimetres too tall still … maybe by the end of the summer it’ll be just right. The concrete mixer was very busy around here a couple of weeks ago helping us construct the new pizza oven on our terrace; but as you can see from the weeds here it’s been taking a well-earned rest recently. But
Mr A has been too lazy to move it from it’s so visually charming that we like to keep it within our immediate living environment.
These grapes were a legacy of the previous owner of this house; the vine struggled up of its own accord in our front garden, so we thought ‘what the hell’ and trained it along our manky fence (this too shall pass) a little.
Maja loves ‘gapes’. Oh lord look, more weeds! I must have, um, missed those ones out the last time I did the weeding. Yeah.
Sometimes she shares with mummy.
