A fresh start


Some months ago Sandra from Static and Silence emailed asking if I was ever going to come back to this blog. I responded "Yes, some day soon".  'Some day' has arrived because our lovely Blue Mountains home passed onto new owners this week.   This means I now have one less home and garden to look after and hence time to renew acquaintance with my blog and blog friends.  

The past year was interesting. Due to COVID restrictions, we were locked-out of our regional country home for three months! This gave us the time we needed to finalise the clean up and get the mountains home ready for sale.

Just before we were locked-out I planned and planted a new vegetable garden.  This summer (being unusually wet) it's been a source of much delight and many fresh vegetables.  Fresh vegetables have come in handy because right now we are locked-in, having caught COVID this past week.  We were only mildly ill and now quite well with plenty of food to see our way through to the end of isolation.

I just wish I had a little more energy because the garden has now entered Autumn shut down and could do with a good tidy up and winter planting but I'm reconciled to having a few more pyjama days before working outside.


  1. Oh sorry you got it, but maybe you spent that indoor time planning more garden projects. Is this downsizing? Your garden looks lovely. Thank you for keeping in touch and commenting, even though I have been so sporadic lately.

  2. Glad to see you blogging again Joan. Hope you get well soon.

  3. That is one impressive veggy garden!
