Feel Good Friday

Hi everyone :)

It’s Friday already… where has the week gone? 

This week I’m dedicating my Feel Good Friday to my daughter Krystal who most definitely needs it!  She’s currently having to deal with a very difficult situation and it’s the first time I’ve really felt that I want her home and safe with me since she left for uni two years ago.

I know she’s a ‘big girl’ now… but she’s still my baby.  Keep strong honey and remember that I’m only a phone call away… love you lots xxx

This week I’ve been thinking a lot about my gardens… or actually the fact that I really don’t have any gardens to speak of. 

I decided to do a Google search for ‘what grows well in Rotorua gardens’… and guess what the top photo was:


Hmm, yes…. well that wasn’t quite what I had in mind!

After a bit more research and Googling I found what I was after and decided that the photos would look great for this weeks page.

I’ve really loving the idea of having some nice gardens so I’m starting with the patio area and I’ve already been busy painting tubs and hopefully tonight I might actually get them planted.

I hope you all have a great Friday xx


  1. No matter how old they get they will always be your baby and am sure she knows she can always come home if need be. All the best. Very funny as for the top pic of growing stuff. LOL

  2. Besides the indoor fun/joy of scrapping, I love to garden. Your Google's first plant choice was funny. I live in a 4 season climate and it can be a challenge to have something of interest all year in the garden. Couple that with the extremely dry summers we have been having and strict watering rules, I have been checking out more of our native plants. I look forward to seeing your crafting in the garden.

    Good luck to Kystral; without sounding to preachie, sometimes it is these difficult times that til the soil of our life so we can plant better, bigger and brighter.


Hi :) I really love hearing from you so please leave me a comment... I really appreciate it!
Thanks, Shell xx
