The week just gone was all about the rain. We had the heaviest rain here, that we’ve had in a long while. This makes me feel a bit more positive about the garden. Usually at the end of summer, I’m feeling a bit sad and wondering if the battle is worth it. Not so this year! Here we are at the first week in autumn and I’m feeling it could be possible to create a lovely garden oasis in this harsh bush setting.
A few photos from around the garden:
The big highlight for the week came on Friday, when I opened an email which told me that I have been chosen to be an Ambassador for Family History Down Under which will be held in March 2021 at the Sunshine Coast. This is a four day genealogy/family history conference, with guest speakers from Australia and overseas. I have been very much looking forward to this conference but now that I’m an ambassador, my excitement his lifted to the next level. A side bonus is that my son and grandchildren are on the sunshine coast, so I’ll get to spend some rare time with them also.
