Moreidlethoughts Weblog

humour,art,gardens, books and whatever idle thoughts float through my mind (it's a very draughty mind.)

Incidentally, you can see these dancers (also on Youtube) performing at the NSW Art Gallery, but I think the dancin’ in the shed is tops.

curry plantCalled the “curry plant,” the leaves are used to flavour  –wait for it -curries! I planted this one in a few years ago and it suffered near-terminal damage when a foxtail shed a frond. But here it is, back again.Or perhaps this is a seedling? Great for that authentic curry  flavour, but I have to say, the green leaves stink!


I might have mentioned, in passing, that I like  handmade books. So when I saw this my jaw dropped. Gob-smacked and flabbergasted don’t cover it. Kudos to you, Ronnie – my patience would have run out long before the thread did!

Well, that ghastly dust seems to have gone (apparently, across the Tasman, and just as well it was  at the latter end of the ski season!) so now I have no excuse for not cleaning  windows. 😦
