The soft green of eucalypts is a particularly Australian colour and one that warms my heart. Over my back fence, near the creek is a big space of young native trees, all growing like mad. I’m particularly fond of the leaves with wobbly edges resplendent in the late afternoon sun.
I’m in the middle of peeing this afternoon when the doorbell rings. By the time I’ve pulled my pants up and opened the door, there’s nobody there, but a lovely box on the doorstep. It’s a delicious box of cheese and nibbles from Vegas & Rose, a birthday present from my lovely friend Karen. The kids and I sat under the back veranda chatting and nibbling on it for ages. Just the nicest thing ever!
