A poppy dress

Several of my sunflowers have opened up now. One of the plants has sprouted lots of little buds that are threatening to reveal themselves also. I thought each plant produced just one flower?


Do you remember the dream I had about a dress which, when I woke up, I had to have but the shop only had size 14 left in stock? I had it resized down to a size 8 and I think it turned out well:


I am a big a fan of poppies. They’re all over my garden, I have a painting on the wall of poppies, and now I have a dress with poppies all over it. I don’t have anywhere to wear the dress but maybe something will come up one day. Or I can just wear it in my lounge room.

I tried to give myself a hair cut today. It has been more than 6 months since I went to a hair dresser and the ends are in a terrible state and it’s getting too long to manage. I just don’t have time to go to the hairdresser so I thought I’d try doing it myself. I put it in a pony tail and cut a few centimetres off the end. I don’t think it really worked because it seems to be shorter at the back than the sides now. Only I don’t have a mirror that will allow me to see the back of my head so I can’t say for sure.

If you think I’m eccentric it’s because I am – so there!
