daily musings of a vintage addict * I am totally obsessed with all things vintage * trying to keep up with my past...and sometimes ordinary everyday life

Location: Katoomba, NSW, Australia

here I am in a little cottage that evokes the energies of my ancestral lands - a cottage on the moors of Cornwall, or on the cliff tops of Ireland or Scotland. It has a hearth. I am a hedge witch {of sorts}. I wear upcycled clothes, patchouli oil and Redback boots. I am a gypsy; an eccentric and a mystic [I often live with a foot in two worlds]. I serve my guests, tea from an old silver teapot. I love Vervain, yarrow, chamomile & mint. Star watcher and Moon gazer. story cloth weaver. keeper of family dreams and wishes. good friend and creator of life. herbal tea drinker and potion maker.

Plan ahead and dream of all the beautiful things that life has to offer

vintage gardening & other stuff ~ August 28

what a wonderful day I have had today ! first I cooked a few bunches of beetroot and pickled them * then I went to the produce store and bought lucerne mulch, mushroom compost & pea straw. I planted 5 potato tubers.. * nicola * variety - I also have kipfler to plant next weekend if I get a chance... I am using the no-dig method for my potatoes this year and see how that works. The garden is looking absolutely divine at the moment...things are starting to bloom and the perfume is heavenly.... I watered all my citrus by bucket & planted a row of society garlic in my rose garden * hopefully it will keep pests at bay *......the grass needs mowing but Joe with his broken arm and myself with the stitches....it isn't getting done this week - I have grass, not lawn in my garden..lots of clover.....do you ever sit for ages, just looking for a 4 leaf one? I did that today.... nice and relaxing ...just sitting there looking and then seeing bugs rushing about their busy lives, noticing the magpies calling and all those wonderful good bugs flitting here and there .....the apple tree is just bursting with buds * it will be glorious soon ..ohh maybe for the wedding ! wouldn't it be wonderful to have photos under the old apple tree - it is over 80 years old. Just gorgeous - just thinking what it has seen in it's life time, brings a smile to my face...who planted it and what hopes and dreams did they have? It makes the best apple crumble and apple sauce - can't wait for that! I think around May or so ....off to my son's for dinner tonight and a busy week ahead !

I think grass is so much nicer than the lawns everyone spends tons of money to have. Finding 4 leaf clovers is my favorite de-stressing to do. what is the no dig method for potatoes?

hey! I always used to look for a 4 leaf clover, i truly used to believe when I was little that if I found one I would be blessed and I could have anything I wished for...

we ended up at the blue mountains yesterday, I am sorry I didn't get a chance to email you, on the way up there I cursed myself for not being more organised, anyway all I can say is WOW! it was beautiful, you must feel blessed to live in such a gorgeous place. The houses! to die for! oh so dolly!!! where do you live? we just touched on the first couple of towns and the waterfall... dolly x
