This whole experience of having my son move away from home has taught me about living more "in the moment". Instead of wishing I was home on the farm whilst I am in Sydney, I just enjoy the time there. In the past whenever we went away I would always be longing to come home. Now I guess because part of my heart is in Sydney, I really don't mind being away so much. In fact I will admit I was a bit teary last night when we left for home minus one member of the family.
We spent a day at the Sydney Royal Easter Show. Hope requested a picture of the fireworks. I'm sure that pyrotechnics for pleasure is an environmental nightmare but there is something about fireworks that a lot of people enjoy. They are pretty even if they don't last long.
We arrived home to cool, wet weather just perfect for settling the new plants I bought into their new home. The selection of plants in the city is much better than here, the price too. I got a few natives for the driveway, a camellia (because I like them and it has Grace in the name), a few lavenders, a variegated elder and a couple of cacti for the girls. Plants and books are definitely my weakness when it comes to spending and although I like online purchasing, it was nice to actually be able to choose plants in person.
I am tired today but hoping to have a good nights sleep tonight and be rready for a full day of farm and garden work tomorrow weather permitting.
