A Very Pink Skirt And A Very Small Snake

Farmgirl has a new skirt.  As I have discussed before Farmgirl loves pink and loves wearing pretty skirts around The Farm.  A friend who knows this bought her what may well be the pinkest skirt in the world.

Farmgirl has worn it non-stop.  I have had to wash it out at night when she is asleep.  Here she has chosen to wear it over her My Little Pony nightie.

It is a very frothy type arrangement and moves a lot when Farmgirl runs or dances.  Here is an action shot.

Farmgirl Running Very Fast

In other Farm news we have had a close encounter of the snake kind.  This one was only a baby, but was taking a swim in our pool.  The Farmer sorted the situation but I am now keeping an eagle eye out for the mummy snake or any siblings...

I have also been following the flooding up in Carnarvon.  One station owner was being interviewed on the ABC radio and he described spending a night with 3 other people and 5 dogs on top of a rain water tank.  He was pretty relaxed about the concept and considered himself lucky that it wasn't worse.  How tough are country people sometimes?  I hope that the waters recede a little bit before Christmas.

I hope everyone has a great Tuesday and that no one is too strung out about Christmas plans.
Take care.

Gorgeous skirt, I don't blame her for not wanting to take it off!

And ew, a snake in the pool?! Aargh! At least it is easily visible in the pool, and easily scooped froma distance I guess, but still, icky!

That skirt is totally to die for! I am way older than Farmgirl but I just know I would be frou-frouing around in it.

Best wishes for a wonderful Christmas and snake-free New Year!

There's something very liberating about running down the longest gravel path you can find, in a pink skirt and doing so completely on your own.

So lucky that Farmgirl has a photo of it to remind her of that feeling when she's a little older.

Allie Cat - The skirt is indeed very special. The snake...not so special.

The Book Chook - Frou frouing is exactly what she has been doing! Thanks for your good wishes.

SSG - Farmgirl loves to run and loves to wear skirts! She is such an independent little spirit... I adore her even when she is doing my head completely in.

Favourite Vintage Finds - Thank you! I am looking forward to peeking at your gorgeous blog in the new year too.
