Luck would have it that last week, my download level for the month was reached and so I could not put up posts, with out it taking 3 billion hours. Lucky, because I have been writing my heart out, all the usual opinions, premonitions, dreams and delusions, sometimes somethings are better left unshared!

I have been enjoying the little time I get to spend in the garden, it is in an abundant stage, every meal is based on what is ready for picking that day, allowing this month food bill to be more than halved, a very good thing, considering the air tickets we will be buying in the near future!
As for home style- feathers are the new flowers! In the last month, my daughter has been in trouble for picking what is not hers, sneaking away with all sorts of pretties, so a transition is being encouraged, from blooms to foraged feathers. Feathers are everywhere; I easy collect a dozen per day. The birds especially Cockatoos descend screeching into the orchard, happy to feast on apples and stone fruit with reckless abandon, they tear the fruit apart in a frenzied feast and leave in there trail a feather or two as exchange. These then take a ride home in my hair; it’s my new habit, feather wearing that is!
