A new year for me.

 It was my birthday on Thursday so I have officially started a new year in my life. I spent it the best way I know how, with my whole family together. It meant a trip to Sydney (Tim was working there for a day so we were going anyway), visits with my sisters and some sightseeing. The closest I came to gardening or farming was stopping in at the beekeeping supply shop for well... beekeeping supplies.
 Grace, Hope and I had a great day in the city. We mostly skirted the shopping precinct and spent our day on the harbour foreshore and at the botanical gardens.
The gardens are a real treasure and definitely more than one trip is needed to appreciate them and have a good look around.

Now though it is back to real life at home. Asparagus needs to picked, I made sure that I harvested all that looked remotely promising before we left but there is a bunch or two in the garden that must be consumed... today. It is very much a right now vegetable and waits for no man. If you hesitate too long, it is gone. It unfurls its fronds and you are too late.
