Homestyle New Zealand Aug/Sept 2011 issue

Well fancy that - one of my very favourite clients and their garden featured in the latest issue of this great new magazine! Still some copies in the shops if you want to go and purchase.

(All photos from Homestyle NZ)

I have just compiled a NEW PAGE on this 'Stunning Upper Plain Garden' - see the list of pages on the right.

Also - who  should be on the front cover, no less, but one very talented ALEX FULTON, interior designer of Chch. I've never met Alex before, but started following her vibrant blog, and you should, too. Rather whacky, colourful and clever lady!! Check out her designer blog........

I LOVE her stripey staircase!!! Soooooooooooooo vibrant and full of personality. Get the mag, as these photos don't do the real images justice.

 Our family has a new addition - Fritz, a German Wire-Haired Pointer.
 Arrived two days ago, and we are completely in love with him.
Enooooooormous feet......
 Supposedly George's deer stalking companion, when he is older. All legs and ears at this stage, with dark chocolate brown head and speckles. Sooooooooooooooo divine!!!!! Isn't he just so cute?????

yellow yellow yellow yellow

Spring. Yellow everywhere, with daffodils being the main player around here. Yellow is just such a simple HAPPY colour. Makes me happy anyway............

The bumble bees are back, too. They can move a lot faster than you think, in and out of the flowers, with a camera lense stalking them from 5cm away. 

All is good with the world. And the weekend is ABOUT. TO. BEGIN. Have a goodie!
