Lavender!

 Saturday afternoon Noel and I popped around to a friend's place so I could cut some of her lavender. 
After we'd cut this lot, you couldn't even tell we had 
taken any the bush was so full!
 Tied up in bundles. I'll be able to use the lavender 
for some nice homemade smelly things!
Hanging in on side of Mitchell's wardrobe to dry. One thing having boys, they don't need lots of wardrobe space. This side also stores all the Christmas things.
When Noel was watering the garden the other evening, he saw this and thought it was a rock. It was actually a baby Tawny Frog Mouth sitting in the garden. He was gone the next morning, hopefully collected by it's mother.
