My eldest would not come with me, I realised I have now partially lost him to these sort of family events, so it was a bittersweet day really.
This is homestead that is part of the Diggers gardens, it has the most magnificent garden surroundings and I am blessed to know one of the horticulturalists that work there.
Grrr, sorry about the blurred photos must be part of the case on the iPad is over the lense!
Occasionally you can find a Hellebore that isn't facing downwards.
Or two if you are really lucky.
I love the drystone walls around the place.
And the beautiful sculptures.
I wasn't actually waving, there was a branch in my face.
They grow veggies here too.
Wish I had some of these covers.
An old piece of equipment that I will find the name of.
Best gate ever!
Finished at the cafe....of course! Look it up if you've not been, it's on Blackwood and part of the diggers club gardens but you don't have to be a member, only $10 to get in and kids free, I cannot wait to return in Spring as I saw many bulbs shooting up.
On the way home we stopped for a lovely bushwalk, I noticed many alarming similarities in my youngest child to my middle one. I realised I have noticed this before, other family members have told me and I have stuck my head in the sand. I've been sidetracked with work and my own priorities, I need to fight now and get his assessed and helped or at least start giving this child more of my time. I won't be posting so much anymore, I need to step back now and try and do something right.
