Quite right!

Saturday Potpourri - a bit of this and that

The Copper Beeches in our area have now got their leaves and are a glorious sight and a reminder that summer is on its way.  These trees are not native to New Zealand but do seem to grow particularly well here.

Hokey pokey ice cream is so iconic in New Zealand that they made a stamp celebrating it.  It is vanilla ice cream with little pieces of a type of honeycomb through it.  I can't enlighten you on how it got its name – it is very much an NZ original.

They keep changing our money – and each new issue seems more garish and plasticky than the last – all in the name of increased security.  And somewhere along the way the Queen got lost….

Who'd be a pollster?

Food on Friday : Candies & Sweets


It's definitely party time for this Food on Friday.  I am looking forward to all your Candies & Sweets with some trepidation – it will all be so very tempting to try.

To add your treats to the table just put your name/blog name plus the name of the candy/sweet into the first Mr Linky box and then paste the url for your post about it into the second box.

To help you check out the other links I will be pinning them to this Pinboard.

Happy times!
