Please don't go away!

I know I've been awfully quiet over the past few weeks, but there's a very good reason for that. As you may (or may not!) know, our smallholding has been up for sale for the past year and twice we've had a buyer, and twice the sale has fallen through. We now have an offer in place and it seems that THIS IS IT! I'll be moving to the coast in a few weeks!

Although I'm looking forward to the change, there's a lot of sadness ... saying goodbye to a garden that has been part of my life for the past thirteen years is not easy, and even more devastating is saying goodbye to my girls. I've had to find a new home for my chooks as it is impossible for me to take them with me.

Lots has happened since our last summer rains, like a tornado and a mega-storm with hail as big as tennis balls hitting the area. My garden is pretty much annihilated, but nature is wonderful - already the trees and plants are bouncing back and will probably look much better for the wear!

This picture was taken the next morning, the day after the storm, and none of the hail in the garden had melted yet.

So please don't go away, as soon as I have more news, I'll be back. See you later!


  1. Those hailstones are huge! Nature is wonderful, is it not, it bounces back beautifully, we should learn from it.
    Happy that your sale will go through, that can be a stressful thing.
    Take care.

    1. Thanks a lot Kay, I must say I am finding it quite stressful at the moment, will be glad when it's all sorted out and over, about another 4 weeks! thanks for stopping by!

  2. Congrats on your smallholding sale going through. Sad to hear you aren't able to take your chooks with you. I've enjoyed reading your blog posts about them. New scenes and stories will await at your new place. I hope your move to the coast goes smoothly.

    1. Thank you sooooo much for your kind comment Anonymous! My heart is broken about my chooks, but they ARE going to a good home where they believe chooks are NOT meant for the pot, so that's a great consolation for me. Talk to you soon!
