My Photo
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

produce from my vintage garden

yesterday, I had Ms*marion from down the road, call in and ask if she could get some persimmons off my tree - of course I said yes! so we grabbed a couple of buckets and headed to the tree. Mr Chough was eyeing us both with disdain - that beak of his, looked positively dangerous - but we braved the elements and found a ricketty old chair to stand on and proceeded to pull the persimmons. The chair was wobbling all over the place but we succeeded in getting ourselves a bucket full each. There are still quite a few more but they are up high in the tree and save getting a tall ladder and taking my life into my own hands by climbing it - there is no way I can reach - so those will be for the birds, nothing like sharing is there?

don't you just love fruits and veggies from your own garden! Sounds like you and your friend had a fun time gathering the fruit.

We have a orange tree and we found an orange picker, do not know if that would work for you. We could get all the oranges down with it. It has a long handle and a holder for the fruit. The fruit looks good on your table. Good luck...

Sharing is great, especially when it's something from your very own garden. I love having a natter with my lovely neighbour Dawn, and then passing over fruit or vegies and she is always passing on cuttings of her plants to me. Great!
Your fruit looks delicious :)

You have just reminded me to replant some hedge plants that my neighbour gave me (gulp) a few weeks ago... they are thriving in my wheelbarrow down the side of my house. That bowl of fruit would make a good still life... I can't say that I have ever tasted persimmons... what do they taste like? hugs xox

Persimmons! Oh I do love their perfumed flavour. They always make me think of Morrocan cuisine.

Hm they look really delicious! It's very nice to share some fruits with the birds too! I always do this with my grapevines and the birds love them.

Mmmmm....persimons! I haven't had one since I left Oz. I wish I could have just one of yours :) They look wonderful. It's so nice of you to share with the birds.
Thanks for visiting, and yes, I do get homesick sometimes...especially for those unmatched Aussie beaches. Ahh, the smell of the ocean...don't get me started!
However, this is a beautiful place to live. I can count my blessings for having once lived many years in the lovely land of Oz and now here in this wonderful country. It helps to be able to visit all my Aussie blog friends :)
