You can also do that with fruit and certian herbs for teas and cordials, its considered fancy. It looks cool enoguh, for holloween it fake bugs and things I hear (don't do hallpween over here, not yet anyway)

No halloween in N-Z?  :-o I can't go live there if there is no Halloween? On what occasion will I be able to scare people?  :cry:

Yeah every year you get some people who try to start it up, being it looks like so much fun on American movies. Never works out afterall people don't stock lollies for it. If it helps the national colour as far as we have one is black, all our sports teams are black this and black that, its also the most commonly worn colour. And religion is a minority issue here, being NZ is considered the most secular country in the world.

My problem with NZ is the cold...never been there but I've heard it's generally cold there. And I live where it gets around 100 F (40ish C) for several weeks in summer...I like hot weather.

My rosemary's doing pretty darn good. Don't know how it'll last the winter, but right now it's growing faster than my lemon balm. Oregano's what I'm having problems with...probably because I planted it late and it didn't have enough time to get properly rooted before the heat hit it...and the dry...have to practically drown it every other day just to keep it alive.

N-Z reminds me of Canada, I mean the weather. Except our winters can get very cold!  :x

i lost my tomatoes, strawberries and a pot of flowers due to the heat we've been having...one day i miss watering them, they're dead the next...sheesh. :cry:

and people still deny there's anything to the science of global warning...they apparantly don't live far up north.   :gun:

*does three cheers for Al Gore*

he really should have been president, he's got a "pagan" attitude.  ;)

Global warming? Maybe but I doubt it because our winters are freaking cold!

ours was record setting short?!?!?

you're even further north, however...

It's just he end of july and the only snow we have are on the glaciers...nothing in the lower elevations, the lakes were warm enough to swim in late april and we barely made our watershed this winter...it sucked.

and the the polar ice cap melting?

i don't know if it's a natural cycle or really because of "us" but there are some serious issues going on with the climates.

*mutters about deforestation*

maybe i'll go meditate outside an see what the nature has to say?   :-D

True, I forgot about the "glaciers". But the human race is an alarmist one, it's just part of evolution.

The deep ice core samples suggest that the climate is following a perfectly normal pattern; the predominant state is Ice Age, with thaws, temperate climate, and temperature spikes in between. Make the best of those heat waves: within our lifetimes we may well see permafrost creep way down the latitudes.

We've been getting record temperatures for awhile. It's cooled off a bit now, but it was over 100 F for two-three weeks.

My oregano is barely alive... I'm still hopeful of saving it, but it's not looking good. I may have to get a new one next year and hope it does better.

At least the heat seems to have killed off whatever was eating my basil to stubs. It's recovered amazingly.

i live in montana, there's nothing good about heat waves, just fires, a lot of fires...i'd like to find an area that has two seasons, spring and fall, maybe a month or two of a nice, temperate summer...a little snow around christmas, but otherwise spring or fall,  i'd be happy in that climate.

at least we have a lot of caves when the ice age hits, if our super ancient ancestors were able to do it, why can't we?

starts experimenting with ochres.

well until i achieve the funds...i'm sort of confined to the states.  :cry:  but after bush one i did look into moving to another country.  ;)

i'd definitly have a lot of people to meet if i ever made across the atlantic!
