Love is in the Air.

Good morning everyone here we are with a brand new week stretching out in front of us.
It is a glorious morning here in my little part of Queensland. Cool and clear bright blue skies and luvverly Sunshine. I hope you all had a great weekend.
Mine was very quiet as I am still at odds with this virus but I did venture out for a special occassion. It was freezing cold 6 degrees which is freezing for us sun lizards up here but with lovely food and good company we soon warmed up. You see......

My lovely nephew announced his engagement to his sweetheart and we went along to help them celebrate.

They are a lovely couple and have been an item for a very long time. So hooray! At last!
The happy couple and the "old Aunty". Congratulations you two!
The rest of the weekend was resting up by the fire watching Miss Marple and stitching.
I did want to show you before I go what I have managed to grow.....this is a minor miracle as it was cut off several times in it's beginnings by the notorious "Dr Hackin-a-bush" that I live with and his evil whipper snipper. I had to put a wall of bricks around it, feed it copious amounts of 'worm tea', talk very nicely to it....I even held it's one remaining little leaf and gave it Reiki (its ok the neighbours already think I'm nuts) Well have a look at her now.....

My Paw-Paw tree or Papaya as it is know elsewhere is tall and laden with fruit. I am hoping they hold off ripening until the warmer weather when I will be here to enjoy them. My house sitters don't like them but they are under strict instructions if they ripen while I am away to distribute them to some grateful friends.
How clever is Mother Nature.
Enjoy your day.
