Hooray for friends!

“A friend is someone who knows all about you and still loves you.” 
~ Elbert Hubbard

 

Isn’t this the most colossal bucket of flowers for ten dollars? They are grown and sold by two elderly brothers who live up the road from us. You can read more about that here.

I’ve had a lovely time finding vases for all of these luscious blooms.

Anyway, I’ll keep this post short and sweet. A friend has come to visit for a few days, and right now we’re doing ‘friend’ things, as much as my energy will allow. Tours of our farm, adventures in the local area. Farmers’ markets. Lots of cups of tea and chats.

I’m so glad for friendship. It truly is the most precious of gifts. And I consider you a friend too, although perhaps we have not yet met.

I also have another shout-out for a friend of mine this morning, currently living on the other side of the world. Kimmie, I love you, and I miss you heaps!

Excellent. Hugs all round!

Okay, we’re off to the Mullumbimby Farmers’ Markets for some breakfast and to fill my basket with fresh produce for the week ahead. Excitingly, I shall be wearing my gumboots because we’ve had RAIN! After such a long dry summer, a little mud has to be a good thing. 🙂

We’ll stop in at the Chocolate Shop on our way back from the markets, because what kind of friend would I be if I didn’t take our guest to such a fabulous place? Then we shall come home, drink chai tea, eat a few sweets and talk some more, as friends do.

Lots of love,

Nicole

  1. Your blooms are beeeeeautiful! they are one of my faves along with violas! Wishing you an abundance of energy for your “gumbootin time” with friend! Perhaps if you have any extra pairs of gumboots you could use them as vases?! Enjoy your lollies! I trust you will keep them close….as who knows what Bert might think once he were to get a lick of your lollies! Enjoy your visit and hugs to you all! xox

  2. Friends, good ones, are priceless. I am just told, coincidentally, in the past day, from 2 friends, one in Sweden and one in Oz, that I am their best most honest friend….being told this is the height of existence I think….and combined with flowers? can’t be beat!! I was at that Mulumbimby Market once when I spent 3 months in Oz, it was the best Farmers Market I’d been to ever!
