Remember this?, Rhododendrons and a Double Yolker!

Remember this post back in April?
Well, now it looks like this.
Actually, it's been finished a couple of months but I've only just got around to posting about it. It is so much cleaner now. And the lilydale topping isn't being walked into the house anymore!

Yesterday, Noel and I went to Cloudehill Nursery in Olinda (up in the Dandenong Ranges) for lunch with some family and friends. I thought I'd show you these beautiful rhododendrons. How amazing is that one on the right? It was huge and bursting with flowers (and many more buds to open up).

We saw these plants. Not too sure what they are but I liked the look of them.
I thought I'd have baked ham and eggs for breakfast this morning with Mitchell (he likes to have these everyday if possible). When I cracked open the second egg, it was a double yolker! After having chickens for over 9 years, this is the very first time this has happened. They must have known it was my birthday and gave it to me as a surprise!
I must admit it doesn't look very appetising at the moment but once I sprinkle cheese on top and bake them - yummm!

Hello Christine,

Happy Birthday for yesterday I hope you were thoroughly spoilt. The plants are flowering cabbage /kale. If you do a search you will find plenty of info on them,they are a decorative plant not the eating variety.
Love the brick paving,a great job.
Lucky you getting a double yolker.
Happy days.
