A Slice of Heaven .... Empty A Slice of Heaven ....

Post  Ev Tue 26 Oct - 17:18

We have just spent Labour Weekend moving into our Kiwi Slice of Heaven ..... it's just so fantastic :cloud7: Peace and quiet, birdlife, nature, awesome views, fabulous sunrises, it's sublime! Though heaven is exhausting to move to! Not long to go now until all of the important chores have been attended to and then I can get back to the site. I have heaps of photos to load from Marcus .... and they are fantastic too!! Studio pottery [my first love Wink ] and Crown Lynn and I just wish that I had the time to spare to get them all loaded on here ..... soon, very soon! I still have many boxes of pottery to unpack ... but I'm saving the best for last cheers I will get some pics before too long, to show you all what Heaven looks like Very Happy

A Slice of Heaven .... Empty 18 different species of birdlife so far....

Post  Ev Tue 2 Nov - 17:52

Lets see if I can remember them all ....
Rosella, Kotuku, Morepork, Hawk, Tui, Fantail, Pukeko, Sparrow, Thrush, Blackbird, Magpie, Duck, Myna, Seagull, Finch, Wax-eye ..... there are two species missing! Will get back with them Smile ... Swallow .. still one more to go ... Yellow Hammer and an unknown green finch .... shag ... can hear doves cooing too.... Swans .... yes truely!! ... there will be more!!! Kingfisher Smile

I finally got to unpack all of my pottery .... and it took all day!
This place consumes my pottery so that I now have room for more!!!!!!!
Only two pieces didn't survive the shift ... a beautiful huge Meri Meri Crown Lynn platter Crying or Very sad
and another very thin old vase that could have been Crown Lynn... but I have pics of both Smile
Pics of our slice of heaven will have to wait as there is no time at the moment..... and I've only got 11 more photos left to load from Marcus's fabulous collection ..... Very Happy

A Slice of Heaven .... Empty Wilma visited us ....

Post  Ev Sun 30 Jan - 16:09

The creek is normally like a babbling brook, but Wilma visited on Friday night and omg the creek turned into a wide raging river. Quite scary as it almost reached our fence and the house isn't far from the fence!! We reckon that the creek rose around 12 feet or more!!

This year I can revel in the most delightful stunning show cheers
