Hellooooo again! :D
It's been a while!



I've been trying to be productive everyday...
I've got tonssssss of photos to show you guys!

First of all... FOOD FOR FREE!
It's that lovely time of year where FRUIT trees are blossoming!
Here are some of the treasures that I've been picking.....

Cherries!.. These are the sour kind, but I also found plenty of the sweet ones!...
I'll try and find the photos, so I can post them on my next post!
Arg, I've got loads of photos of foraging which I can't find atm :(
But I'll posts them next time :)

They are to live for!

There are a few different varieties I've found (we've got, like 7 TREES RIGHT OUTSIDE our apartmement!!!!)
... white, pink (my FAV!), and black! YUMMMM!!!

Okay, no I didn't forage these bananas, though >.<

Haha, all these bananas were GONE in 3 days! :)
Magic! ;)

Oohhhh, found an apricot tree near me, hope to be back there soon.......

We went to a garden centre called Botanic (ohhh, I love going there ^_^! haha,m so fun looking at all of the things I could grow... PLUS, they've recently changed to ALL organic!! wooo!)..

Pretty flowers :)

Arg, I wanted to get sooooo many plants!
They had fig trees, kiwi plants, abricot trees, blueberry & raspberry plants


....Is my FAVVV kind! It seriously tastes like marsypan to me!! :)

Ohhh, and following a youtube video, Rocket Composting (REALLY good idea, btw! Thanks Yardsnacker!) I did my own compost goo a few weeks back...

And looking at my plants now, I can say that I think it really helped my plants!!
(On the next post, I will update on my balcony garden... which is giong veryyyy well!! YAY!)

Did I mention my brother visited a few weeks back?
Ohhh, it was sooo lovely to see him!!
And the best bit? He was REALLY motivated to change his lifestyle/diet!!
Ahhh, I was over-the-moon happy!! :)

His B-Day had also just been, so me and mum made him a RAW chocolate Brownie cake!! :)

... Which he gobbled up with joy ;)

More pretty flowers which were at the garden centre..... :)

Oh, and I also went to Aqua Park with some friends... I'll post the pics up next time as they're still on my phone :) It was awesome!

Picture Post Update!! :)

Ahh, sorry.. I thought I posted this yesterday!!!

Okay.. So, I've got quite alot of pics to share!!! :)

These first ones are of a animal RESCUE zoo we visited nearby, where they 'rescue' animals that 'real' zoos don't want any more, and they even rescue animals that have been part of scientific experiments! ...

They had a few fig trees, too!! All had figs on them, but not the edible kind apparently...
Although they looked ripe, they were all dry inside :( What a shame!!!

Note alllllllll of the cherries were ripe, but some were!
I was SOOO excited :DDD -- It was my first time in AGES picking fruit off the tree!!

Unfortunately (for the animals!), it was located right next the the airport, and so every 20 minutes or so while we were there, a noisy air plane flu (sp???!) over us...

However, the place was reallllyyy nicley done up as best the owner could (he was really nice, too!), and it was all greeeeen and loads of gorgeous flowers!..

And this AMAZINGLY friendly crow!!!....

ANd absolutely GORGEOUS 'wild' cats... I did feel a bit sad that they were in small enclosures though :( ... but they are much better

I just wanted to cuddle him! ;)

(this is a wild boar) :)




This watermelon was absolutely GORGEOUS!
Just look at the patterns and swirls!!!

Pics of walks :)

Found an apricot tree :D
..Hmm, planning to come back to it in a few weeks time :)

Watermelon smoothie!! YUM!

My rocket plants flowered!..
Pretty, but it stopped them from growing the rocket leaves!!! :(

I built my own shelves from all of these date boxes I had!!!! haha!!
Recycling and reusing is the way to go!!

ALL I used is the boxes and toothpicks!!!
No glue, no complicated things, just made 'em with things (2!) I had around the flat!

My FAVVVVVVV (or 1 of!:) smoothies:

Simply Cantaloupe melon blended!

More mangos ;)

I love these pics from a recent late walk...
The dark deep blue clear sky was just magical..
The pics don't quite capture it, I could have just stared at that sky all night!!

Glad to be back :)
