How was your weekend?... mine was lovely, but too short.
I treated myself with these lovely peonies when I went grocery shopping at the supermarket.
If only I could grow these beautiful flowers, they always remind me of a beautiful silk gown.
I was playing around with my new camera and still have so much to learn about it.
Having fun though with it and one day hope my photographs will be better.
An explosion at the Pike River coal mine, on the West Coast of the South Island, has trapped 29 miners. We are anxiously awaiting further news and our thoughts, hopes and prayers are with the miners, their family and friends and the rescue team.
Update~ sadly there has been a second massive explosion down the mine. Police have said the explosion was so powerful and ends all hope for the miners.
So a very sad and dark day for New Zealand. Prayers and comfort go out to all the people that have friends and family that were down the mine.

is having a generous giveaway ~ she is kindly giving a wonderful Advent Calender to some very, very lucky person.
24 bags with 24 clothespins, and she is going to fill the first 3 bags, with small surprises.
Why don't you go and visit her and her beautiful blog, and she always has such lovely photographs.
I appreciate everyone who takes the time out of their busy day, to leave me such encouraging comments. It was lovely to read all the notes you left, about my Dads apple tree, thank you very much.
Have a happy week
