Just relaxing on the verandah taking a break from weeding the Plant Prison ( aka the fenced wallaby-proof flowerbed) and enjoying the dappled afternoon sunshine. All I need now is a G&T πŸ˜ƒ

Cool drink for a hot day! Vanilla ice-cream, tonic, ice and Short Black Liqueur. It's too hot to work outside. Hard to remember that we had frost last week!

The garden is slowly waking up from its winter slumber. Hard to believe today that it snowed a week ago!

Hot stuff! Strawberry & Raspberry Sweet Chilli Sauce for the men in my life! πŸ˜ƒ
My husband came home with a large punnet of local strawberries and I had discovered some freezer treasures ; home-grown raspberries and super - hot chillies from a friend's garden, so sweet chilli sauce it will be. I based it on @sally_anne_wise 's recipe but I cannot stick to a recipe so doubled the amount of fruit and garlic πŸ˜ƒ

Early morning smoke from our woodstove drifts across the glen.

Surprise! We woke up to snow!

The rhododendrons are beautiful this year. It's one of the few plants wallabies and possums don't eat!

Have finished the vacuuming yet? Sad faces at the kitchen door!

Yuzu sorbet and Black Sesame sorbet at Izakaya Yebisu, Sydney. I'm a sucker for anything yuzu! πŸ˜ƒWe also enjoyed matcha sweetened with a kind of syrupy yuzu jam. I wish I could grow a yuzu tree!

My humble kitchen flowers ( both the kitchen and the buttercups!) #flowers#weeds#butnotthatweed#beautifulflowers#flowerseveryday#fairyglenfarm#Tasmania

Simpletoms waiting to be wiped and turned. Jed made these while I was away. It's already 23C degrees outside, and creeping up to 30C degrees! In the cheesecave it's a cool 11C degrees.I think I might spend some more time in their later... with a cool drink in hand. πŸ˜„( The shutters are firmly closed on days like this.) #hotday#coolcave#sheepmilkcheese#rawmilk#organic#farmcheese#Tomme#fairyglenfarm#Tasmania

Haha! Yes it was! Lunch at Little Piggy, in Point Clare, Central Coast. Prosciutto, and a very generous amount of Gorgonzola, on good sourdough toast. Delicious!

A future art dealer or art curator? My grandson (nearly 8) earnestly explaining his mum's @minka_gillian 's sculpture to anyone who was interested. He is very proud of his mum's work and is quite serious about promoting it!

A breakfast made with love is the best kind of breakfast especially if it made by your nearly-eight-year-old grandson! I was woken up with an offer of breakfast in bed and he would make whatever I desired. I chose peanutbutter on toast and a glass of water. It was a special breakfast πŸ’™
It's a lovely age ; when I was dropping him off at school and giving him a goodbye kiss, his best friend ran past saying 'There's nothing more beautiful than grandmothers! '

Could the collective noun for these pansies be a 'grump'? 😁 They look like they're protesting!

Drops of nectar glint like diamonds on the waratah. The nectar drips out of the flowers (and forms a sticky puddle under the vase). No wonder the birds and bees love the waratah! Children also like to stick their fingers into the nectar and lick the sweetness.

Weeds can be beautiful too! I love buttercups and they last so well in a vase. When I was visiting the Netherlands a few years ago, my aunt was amused when I made posies from the 'weeds' I encountered on our walks. It brought back happy childhood memories. We didn't have a garden when we lived in Amsterdam so I loved to gather wildflowers, pussy willow branches growing along canals, and even stealing the occasional rose growing in municipal gardens, and then proudly presenting my arrangements ( loot) to my mother. Funnily enough my daughter used to do exactly the same! Any flowers growing over a fence on the way to school were there for the picking for a bouquet for me! πŸ˜€

It's such horribly cold, sleety weather we needed comfort food by the fire! A simple fondue made with our Dracula sheep's milk cheese, cubes of homemade sourdough bread, and a glass of the young white wine we made earlier this year, was perfect for our Friday night in by the fire. Feeling full and mellow! πŸ˜„

Accidental colour match! I nearly missed seeing these tulips that popped up near the red rhododendron. Hoping that the snow stays away! It is only 5 degrees C and there is a possibility of snow tonight. The garden won't like it... #gardensurprise#organicgardening#countrygarden#tulips#Dutch#fairyglenfarm#Tasmania

Early morning light in the kitchen, and pensive cat, on a cold Spring morning.

Waratah (Telopea truncata) Tasmania's floral emblem. We have a 4 metre -high shrub in the garden with numerous flowers this year. The flowers drip copious amounts of nectar ; great for the bees, birds and kids! The bush and the flowers decrease in size with altitude; on the nearby mountain they are smaller than ours (and flower later) but the plants growing at sea level are bigger than ours as we live high in the hills.

Meet Millie ; she arrived on our verandah 15 years ago as a scruffy, undernourished, dumped kitten. She adopted us and has bossed us around ever since! When we come home after being out for a few hours, she meets us at the gate, then proceeds to lead the car, with her tail up in the air, ever so slowly down the driveway. This welcoming ritual never varies.
