This Week...

We had a huge surprise recently in our backyard by the fence
This is the second year we gave had new neighbours on one side and previously we hadn't noticed a vine growing as she kept everything meticulously trimmed......

And look at this......a grapevine with grapes coming on......Mr Arnchair trimmed some leaves to see what was happening and check it out!!!


Michael Edgley's Moscow Circus has hit town and due to good reports JoJo and I headd off to buy our tickets......looking forward to that

And playing around with a new programme for taking pics 365 days and adding them to a calendar daily and because Mimi was in front of me she was the first pic I took......she is growing up to be the most affectionate and beautiful dog!!!

Happy Weekend everyone.......Dzintra

That is the best kind of harvest...when it just appears. I'm sur e you find something scrumptious to make with them too. Enjoy the circus. I am doing Photo365 too, it really makes me stop and be grateful every day.

teeehee.....look at MIMI! Labradors are the most affectionate of dogs, and that is why I would LOVE to have a blondie, like Mimi and a chocolate and a black one. Imagine however, the WORK? woooo!

Dearest Dzintra! GRAPES! My favorite...but the look of them on the vine, how beautiful for your garden!

Wishing you a fantastic time at the circus with sweet JoJo my friend! Anita

Jā, vīnogām zari pirms nogatavošanās jāapgriež. Mums pagājušajā rudenī bija ļoti laba raža no mūsu viena vīnogulāja, jo bija silts septembris bez salnām. Arī citur Latvijā bija labas ražas. Bet kā augi izturēs šo kailsalu, kas te valda jau nedēļu? Lai priecīgs cirka apmeklējums!

We were so happy to see a grapevine along the back fence of our new house... until no grapes appeared that season. It turns out there are male plants and female plants - we planted a companion and hopefully this year will have a better result! I just love making grape jelly, and I'm sure you'll come up with something just as delicious!

Happy Australia Day! Have a great day with your family!
Oh those grapes, such a great surprise! I'm sure you all will have fun at the circus. Cute Mimi! I think I have missed something, Mimi? A new family member?
