And now in Darwin...

(viewed 190 times)
Ooooops, missed the almost two years I was in Broome- lifechanging and wonderful place. But now I am in Darwin- hotter and different again, but still tropical. I don't see myself ever going back to the crush of Sydney. Tropical forever now...

Bye Bye Sydney, Hello Broome

(viewed 632 times)
It's all sorted and I'm off to Broome for 12 months to write a teaching resource for drilling and water treatment and doing some teaching on a cattle production course with Aboriginal students. I can't wait- what an adventure. It's all a bit outside my comfort zone, but what's life without a challenge?

Veg garden for winter w bird

(viewed 718 times)
HAve had quite a hard working few weeks building the dry stone wall for the
new vegie patch. Not world class but it does the job- along with the tonne
of compost and tonnes of soil I lugged inot the graden bed.

Planted are:
pansies and marigolds, larkspur and foxglove, sunflower and sweetpea
celery
cabbage
cauiflower
broccoli
zucchini
beetroot
red onion
peas
and snowpeas

Should be enough to keep me going for a while- presuming they all grow of
course!
