Autumn gardens




Last week was filled with garden inspirations, especially because the weather was incredible over the long weekend. On Friday I visited the Metlink Edible Garden in City Square which was a part of Melbourne’s Food and Wine Festival. The edible gardens were set up by the Digger’s Club (which I’m a proud member of!) who created a green oasis in the city centre. Corporate types were coming down in their lunch break to enjoy the blossoming surrounds and I’ve never seen so much wildlife in the city centre before – birds and butterflies were hanging around soaking it all up the same as all the city slickers. The Digger’s Club hosted a bunch of free talks including how to grow garlic and sowing seeds, and there were free cooking demonstrations. It was really very festive! (Oh and Costa was there, he’s the coolest!)

Then over the weekend we visited my friend Victoria’s Aunty and Uncle’s beautiful Mt Eliza paradise. Created over a life time of devotion in the garden, Aunty Kate has created a little piece of heaven with a massive vegetable patch (which mostly fed us the whole weekend), chickens, beautiful big fruit trees and loads of other cottage garden plants. Unfortunately I didn’t get any good pictures of the garden except of us all having breakfast in the garden in our pj’s…

Aside from frolicking in gardens which is my favourite pastime, I have been busy busy getting my new products organised! But more on that next week when I should have photos of the new lovelies.
