Buddha Garagista

Not only are we slowly being squeezed out of the house by burgeoning stock, the car has been ousted from the garage.

Our most recent shipment arrived two weeks ago and is finally unpacked. The wooden crates are lying around the back garden, waiting to be broken up and packed away neatly. If we just wait a year or two the Golden Shower will gradually cover this one, saving us a bit of effort.

    Hmmmm… if you’re lucky, you can sell that crate as a shopping artifact from ancient…. Oh, never mind. 😉

    What a wonderful stash. Are those two paintings or prints propped up in the back by the same artist? They’re wonderful. I especially like the one on the right. I wouldn’t mind looking like that myself! (Not going to happen, at least in this lifetime. If I don’t stop with the ice cream, I’ll look more like one of your Buddhas. I’m working on that.)

    I just came across a post by a woman who lives in the high desert – she has a wonderful poppy plant that’s native to the area, and propagates by fire. It’s really interesting – thought you might be interested in seeing this article about it.. I wish it would grow here – if we don’t get some rain soon, we’ll have the desert to support it!

    I really envy you guys your fab range of ice creams – here in the back of beyond we have the three (pink, brown and white).

    Looking like Buddha in the name of ice cream is a worthy journey shore, and one on which I feel you should keep working! Those are paintings featuring nubile young Asian women, not too much ice cream there.

    Love those poppies, so intensely white and beautiful. Thanks for the link and here’s hoping for a big Texan rain.

    When is a garage not a garage? When it can be a gorgeous boutique! it. What is that on the left wall? Shelves of decorative boxes OR artwork? Doesn’t matter – love it all. Would love to come over and “shop.” You have such a knack for design – always wonderful things to look at in your pictures. Keep us current on the plant overtaking the crate!

    Hi Jeannine

    Are you keeping the crates for a reason? I’m a future Sedgefield dweller (still currently in JHB) but moving in January – cannot wait.
    If you are interested in getting rid of the crates, or selling them, I’m definitely interested.
    Very interesting blog and posts.
    Kind regards,

    Hi Marius
    I’m afraid the crates are nearly gone – it’s been a long, cold winter and they’ve been great fire wood!
    Summer is in the air for the first time and it should be lovely by the time you get here. Just make sure you prepare for your first winter here, it’s brutal – a fire place and red wine are necessary survival items. I look forward to seeing you around Sedgefield soon!

    Sure is good to see your postings! I know you’re busy, but see what you’re up to always is a treat.

    Still no rain here. Ah, well. Most people are answering the “will it rain?” question by saying “it either will or it won’t”. That about covers it. 😉
