A lovely Basket of Flowers for today….The Red ones hanging down are Sleeping Hibiscus, they do not open any more than they are on the photo, therefore called Sleeping but are very pretty and can grow into a nice hedge. Geraldton Wax and Yellow Lantana with the Brown coloured leaves make a beautiful display.
How about a Recipe:
Here we have one for Flap Jacks, the children will love them, they can be cut into squares and used for Afternoon Tea.
Ingredients: 6oz. Butter or Margarine: 6oz – Demerara Sugar; 8oz Rolled Oats; pinch of salt.

What about a Poem then ?
It is called – * I Just Remembered *
I just remembered, did I forget to do that
or – did I do it and forget that I did it?
I forget now but if I do it now and
I have already done it, that means that I
would have done it twice.
Best if I don’t do it now.
I may not have done it at all
if I didn’t do it in the first place.
What a dilemma, why did I just think that
I hadn’t done it, then think that maybe I had.
Well I remember thinking that I should
but I wonder if I did.
The best thing is to go and look I suppose –
– now what was it that I think I forgot to do.
I can’t remember now, best to have a Cuppa
and think about it later.
Maybe you can relate to the poem……as we get older it is sometimes a problem to remember where we have put things in that special place – the place where we thought we would remember that we had put them. Eventually they will be in a special place just to surprise us – when we do find them. !!!

* Just a simple Basket of Flowers today *
With Bougainvillea and some yellow Lantana.
Sometimes you only need a few cuttings of flowers with some leaves from the garden to make a lovely arrangement.
I hope you can find some kind of flower from your garden or maybe purchase some from the shop – to make a special arrangement for your kitchen or lounge room.
It is amazing how flowers can lift the spirit and we can receive some joy from their perfume also from their presence in our home.
Even one flower or a couple of small cuttings of green leaves in a vase or glass can be very nice.
In the kitchen if you put a sprig of Mint in a glass or other Herb that you specially like somewhere near the sink it is really nice to touch one of their leaves between your fingers and smell their particular perfume. It can give you a lift in your spirit while washing up…..etc., Remember you can also eat one of the leaves off of your special Herb, they are very good for us.
Here is a tasty recipe: (Have you ever made these)?

Thought you may like a Poem – so here we are:-
“Pansy Flower ”
Hello, I am a Pansy Flower, with a face upon my Petals.
My face is full of colour – Purple, Red and Yellow.
You can see my face if you look quite closely.
My face looks to the sky.
Although I am beautiful I am really quite shy.
I hide among the taller plants, they are so high and lofty.
But I don’t mind a bit, because I’ll never – ever be lonely.
We usually grow in clusters you see, us dearest little ’Pansies’.
Children love to peer at us, they wonder if we can see them.
Yes of course we can.
We see the Sun, we feel the breeze, the lovely refreshing rain.
We love to grow in our little clumps and we cheer you up
if you feel down in the dumps.
I have no arms or legs you know but I have good strong
So grow me in your garden beds or put me in a pot.
Just remember not to put me somewhere that is really too hot.
Remember I am your little Pansy friend
with a beautiful friendly face. …
*Hope you have a lovely Day Today*
