Did My Garden Survive?

It was good to be home after three and a bit weeks away.  Arriving back late in the evening, I couldn’t wait till the morning to view my garden.  I had been wondering how the garden would cope without my attention for almost a month.

In the early morning light, I grabbed my camera phone to capture the first glimpses of the ‘reunion’.

Well as you can see the garden not only survived but perhaps thrived in my  absence (I like that I need my garden more than it needs me).

Australia’s Southern Highlands Pottery and Sustainable Farm Visit

On Saturday,  my Seed Savers friends and I visited Steve Harrison and Janine King’s property. Their place is only a ten minute drive from our home.

Both Steve and Janine are very well known Australian potters. They moved to the Southern Highlands 40 years ago to live a sustainable lifestyle.

We all were given a glorious guided tour of their expansive gardens, pottery sheds and produce storage preserves. Everyone brought home made goodies to share for lunch afterwards – a chance to discuss sustainable living ideas.

Steve and Janine thankyou for your warm hospitality.  I (and our Little One) had a wonderful day.
