I love them!

https://simple.wikipedia.org/wiki/Feijoa

The fruit matures in autumn and is green, and about the size and shape of an egg. It has a sweet, aromatic flavour. The flesh is juicy. The fruit drops when ripe, but can be picked from the tree before to prevent bruising. Feijoa fruit have a distinctive smell. The chemical methyl benzoate smells strongly of feijoas and the aroma of the fruit is caused mostly by this and other closely related chemicals.

New view from my doorstep


As you all know I moved House on the 8th of March. There are still some things left in my old place that needs to be moved. Hopefully, this come week will be the last of it. This coming weekend is a long weekend starting Friday and back to school on Following Wednesday.

I sat on the steps cutting my toenails.

Two tiny frogs


I mentioned in my previous post about the frogs I had to feed while house sitting high up in the hills near Upper Hutt New Zealand.

Here are more photos. They were so tiny when I took these photos at my arrival. After the two weeks feeding them flies they were twice the size.
