A basket of succulents given to me by my neighbours when they came to dinner. Sue and John are very experienced gardeners and manage to grow a wide variety of species by the sea. Sue gathered all the succulent varieties from her vast collection that she knew I did not have in my meagre collection.
Sue also gave me something else very special, a small purse she made of exquisite papers and for added value, it was filled with Anvers truffles. Anvers is a Tasmanian chocolate maker. Artist Sue Briginshaw also makes her own gift cards and I am building quite a collection.
This effort is way beyond a card.
Friends from interstate arriving with my absolutely favourite chocolate from Belgium, Marcolini single origin dark chocolate.
And finally a photo of my mother who visited me in Brisbane and surprised me with hot pink flashes in her hair.
