Rhiannon came up to help me do some weeding today, so we had punch during our lunch break
I can see why someone looked at a kiwi fruit and thought, "Frog spawn."
Mum and I talked about leaving out the jelly, but then found vegetarian jelly crystals and I was able to proceed as normal. Although the jelly was clear so I added my own colouring.
Lots of lovely froth.
A rare excuse to use not only the cocktail glasses but my Halloween glass charms.
I don't actually like kiwi fruit and I felt personally that it tasted too much like kiwi fruit. But Rhiannon assured me it was good. On his return from work, Bennie liked it too.
Looks like it's on the menu for my Halloween Craft Party. I think I will find a second punch recipe (perhaps something orange?) that I do like to go with it.
The actual weeding went well. Today's mission was to rip into the Blue Periwinkle in the back. I'd had a bit of a go at it, and discovered chicken wire hampering my efforts and temporarily given up, slaughtering another Agapanthus instead.
Before shot, with one slight dent made by my previous efforts:
After about 3 hours of work. We reached the trunk of one of the trees! I don't feel these photos do justice to our epic battle.
But we also uncovered a lot of things (in addition to the chicken wire) - a section of pipe, a broken toy spanner, a nasty-looking spider, some rope, some string, a piece of metal that looked like it was once part of some play equipment, a golf ball, and a crazy twist of metal wire that is still in there. Looks like more epic battles will be required.
Cheers! We earned this punch!
