On my last blog post, here, I shared a story and photos from my great grandmother, Lillian's cookbook. Well done Jo from Tas! It is Mrs. Beeton's Book of Household Management. This is the second edition. The first edition was released in 1861. You can read more about the fascinating author, Isabella Beeton who was only 21 when she started writing the book (much younger than the she sounds). A small prize is on it's way to Jo.
I haven't shared much in the way of gardens recently. We have just returned from a holiday in Cradle Mountain, Tasmania. Due to heavy rain on the mountain we did some touring at a lower altitude in the Meaner Valley. We stopped for lunch at Marakoopa Café and ate delicious pork and beef kranksy sausages. The garden here was in full autumn bloom and beautifully set out. Tom ran off into areas that were roped off so I had to explore the garden further to catch him.
We stumbled across this vegetable garden that was fenced with alternating hedging plant and wood piles. I love veggie gardens especially those on country properties. I keenly explore them. The symmetry, beds and borders in a veggie garden in combination with the variety of foliage appeal to me. I secretly dream of owning a sandstone country home on an estate, so a hedged vegetable garden is part of that dream.
I hope you are enjoy some happy moments. Thank you for stopping on by...
