AND NOW THE PARTY

image A few photos from my 50th party...more to come...image
The rain stopped minutes before everyone arrived...
Outside it looked a picture...
image imageInside, James set up the cocktail bar and manual blender on a bike...delicious, exquisite little drinks made from pomegranates, bananas, mandarins, custard apples, rum, vodka, limes, frangelico and who knows what else.... and you can see the painted gardener on the wall ready for the game...

...There were caterpillars and irrigation pipes, scarecrows and a genetically modified carrot!

Food by Jarrod, all home made, organic, delicious...
image image The craziest costumes...the most wonderful people....so much fun...old friends...new blog friends....boys and girlfriends doing all the work...
image Pin the secateurs on the gardener was a surprisingly popular game for the over 50's!
image Alex adorned with vegies, Roger with his watering system and me, the ' lovely garden seed bank'.....
image image There were peas in pods, bees, caterpillar woman and plenty of compost bins!
image...and the presents...so carefully chosen for an old vegetable enthusiast and one who loves and appreciates home-made / local / living things...quite overwhelmingly thoughtful, every one of them...

...the aftermath ......and the family is exhausted....and feeling a little bit more crazy than usual !
