Catch up...

So what's been happening in your world lately? Me? I've had a few small adventures....


A visit to one of my favourite nurseries to purchase a birthday present for a dear friend. We chose a Tahitian Lime tree which has been propagated to a semi-dwarf variety so that it can be planted in the garden or remain in a pot. We have one (in a pot) and they are so juicy - perfect for cooking with and in drinks too. This nursery is amazing and is home to one of my favourite trees in all of Perth ....


... a giant Ghost Gum. I'd need a specialist lens to fit this big boy in. He's just so grand and majestic. 
To stand underneath him is to stand in the shoes of History. This image does him no justice whatsoever.
Secret - I kiss and hug him whenever I go there (usually when no one is looking)


At home I've planted a new succulent garden - images to follow when I've mulched properly. 
This beauty below is one of the feature plants ...


... then finally our Herb Patch has been tended to. Basil, Rocket, Parsley, Coriander, Stevia, Lemongrass, Chillies (six varieties ... for Hubby the crazy Chili fiend) and LOADS of tomatoes. 
Yum! Yay! Whoop Whoop!


Then a jaunt to the city to shop for much needed Winter threads.
This time not for me, but for my growing lad and his Dad.
I was given over to such a sense of joy when I witnessed all these children racing around in the City Square fountains. Not a care in the world as to who was watching.....


Note all the adults watching and supervising but not one actually in the thick of it laughing, giggling and squealing.... Interesting. Imagine how different this world would be if grown-ups lost a bunch of their inhibitions and behaved like kids more often...


... speaking of big kids... Young Prince wolfing down
an ice-cream from David Jones food hall... Note that all the Easter 
Chocolate is out and I'm still on my "cleanse" - no chocolate and no tea 
for me this Easter - crazy huh?


Throw in ...


... a little...


... bit of styling...


... and a birthday ....


.... and there you have it. A quick catch up in to the world that is Tied Up With String. 
Of course my course is still coming along in leaps and bounds and I'm LOVING it. 
This week we look at wire work, button holes and corsages. 

I hope your week is looking up? Have you been busy? What about your plans 
for Easter? Are you going away? Do tell...

PS - The last image is of my birthday wrapping paper
from Hubby... he found a lipstick of mine and covered the 
whole package in kisses... ♥♥♥

Oh, the Ghost Gum is a stunning tree! I would love to see one in person. Wouldn't mind strolling through that beautiful nursery, either.

And as always, your photos are great.

Angy!!! I'm a new visitor to your blog and... well, I definitely didn't assume that you spend your entire day staring at flowers (though, that wouldn't be a bad way to spend the day, methinks!). Love your blog... love the photos, the earthy and delicious recipes and the gorgeous design inspiration. I'm a fellow Perthian so it's always exciting to find more arty bloggers from my neighbourhood! :)
