Where did the last 6 weeks go?

The distractions of moving house have kept me away from the nursery for ages and poor Mel has been doing just about everything, but at last we are in our new house and I can stop thinking about light switches and colours for the bedroom walls.

We were loading plants this evening for tomorrows pack up and blow me down if the guava, fejoa and fig trees are not loaded with ripe fruit. A bit smaller than last year but nice. Are they early or has the time just gone by faster than normal? I'm not so keen on figs but the white eyes love them.
