Ahhh.. The Serenity!
What a great Australian saying made famous by one of our favourite Australian movies of all time." The Castle". Today I spent the day with my very dear friend Sandy, in her bush retreat. I last saw this retreat about 7 months ago and the progress with the renovations and gardens is a credit to her and her husband, in what they have achieved in such a short time. We spent the day working in the garden, had lunch with tiny finches close by and then went for a bush walk, what a great way to chill out and relax amongst nature at it very best. Usually there are green parrots and other colourful birds around, but as the wind picked, up all went quite with the birds. I did manage to come home with a bag full of lemons, so must make some lemon butter. It is the simple things that look great, like just planting a few succulents into a tree stump and making use of natural rock already in the bush.c
