We all had quite a good time in the end. Even Farmgirl managed to pick out two sensiblish pairs of shoes for winter. Previous years have involved me doing some tough negotiating as to exactly why hot pink sparkly high-heeled thongs that are two sizes too big are not suitable winter footwear when one lives on a farm and is a five year old girl.....
Anyway this time she was given instructions to choose a pair of ballet flats and a pair of boots. For the first time ever she did fairly well and came up with the two pairs below. Yay.
Look. Ballet flats.

|Going Out Boots (As Opposed To Farm Boots!)|
Farmboy has surprisingly good taste and nabbed himself a pair of basketbally type boots and some Vans. Way to go.
We also headed to the nursery. The old WA reliable Waldecks still had its $6 plant sale on. This was fantastic as I needed twenty five mini agapanthus. So with the help of The Farmchildren I loaded up the back of the car.
|Lots Of Dwarf Agapanthus With A Few Normal Ones Too!|
My Mum was cross I had bought dwarf aggies as she has stacks at her beach house. Unfortunately said beach house is 500 km away so not really a viable option for my garden....
I got onto the planting when we got home from Perth. They are dwarf blue agapanthus and will underplant the pink David Austen roses around the front verandah. Agapanthus is Farmgirl's current favourite word. So funny as she walks around saying it all the time.
Last but not least - I promised seeding photos. I did try. Really I did. So dusty here though that I gave up.
See - I promise there is an air seeding bar in there somewhere.

I might get back to you on the tractor photos when it rains...
ANZAC Day tomorrow. We will take The Farmchildren in to the local Dawn Service. I always find the ANZAC service in our country town to be very special.
