Sunny Sunday in Paradise

We may well have been enjoying a lazy day Sunday at home, but Robin jumped out of bed at 6.00am today.  Must have had something to do with the All Blacks versus England Rugby match being shown on Sky TV, I suspect.  But it kept him happily occupied while I slumbered on a little longer.  Happy that the All Blacks had another win, he then set to and cooked up his Sunday special, his version of a full Kiwi Breakfast.  We had bacon and eggs, I got the double yolker this time, black pudding, and tomatoe.  It smelt great and tasted even better.  So that got the morning off to a good start!

It’s been a lovely day, the sun is shining, the New Zealand flag is fluttering on the flag pole, and Robin has been busy pottering around all day.  So he really enjoyed a cool beer sitting outside at the picnic table under the shade of the sun umbrella, while I sipped a shandy.  The garden is growing well, and our recently transplanted rhubarb is almost ready to cut, cook up and enjoy.

We don’t have a huge garden, by any means, but the little seedlings of tomatoes, green peppers, peas, beetroot and lettuces are starting to grow and thrive.

And we are most excited to discover flowers on our passion fruit vine – lets hope we get some of this tasty fruit later on.  And our small lemon tree is covered in flowers which hopefully will lead to a bumper crop of lemons. For a pair of unenthusiastic gardeners like us, we seem to be doing fine.  So everything is well in our own special part of paradise on such lovely sunny Sunday.
