Blessings at my back door!


“If you have a garden and a library, you have everything you need.”
(Si hortum in bibliotheca habes, deerit nihil.)
― Cicero, Letters to His Friends, Vol 2: Books 7-12


In my pyjamas, sipping tea in the backyard after a rough night. It’s so breathtakingly beautiful here at the farm that I can’t help but feel a little cheered. I thought I’d share my morning with you…

  1. It makes me feel nice nice & cool looking at your photos. It’s a 46 degC day here in South Australia. Have just come inside for breakfast after being outside for a few hours watering the shrubs that look most needy, the herb garden, all the pots, changing over the irrigation in the vineyard & fixing some drippers, and topping up water for the chooks & the dogs. We’re back inside, all but the chooks 🙂 & hunkering down for a bit of a slow day. To help cool down I’ll recall some of that lush green from beautiful northern NSW. Thanks for sharing your morning & may the rest of your day be just as beautiful x

  2. Awesome..I can really get the picture. Here the morning dew forms crystal beads on the frail mauve ends of the molasses grass heads….. Its fairy land early on a brisk morn. Inductive Aloha

  3. My world (my morning ) is so different in the U.K. to yours but just as beautiful . I ‘ve just took my dog Oscar out for early morning walk . The sky is a light blackish blue and the moon is still smiling an antique gold smile ( at that time it was 7.30 ) and there was a crushed ice feeling in the breeze. So you shared a slice of your beauty with me and I’ve shared a slice of beauty with you. What a lovely breakfast .
