I still have a garden

It is so hard to believe that while NSW is in a state of emergency with their fires we are still waiting for our ground to dry out. The poor sheep have had a very wet time under foot and I have to remember to wear my gumboots if I stray from our paths so I dont end up with wet feet.
After our very hot last summer and the hungry wildlife I am happy to say I still have a few things growing in my garden, not as much as before but I think I can still call it a garden.
Our dam is full.

 A few plants none of the animals have ever tried to eat. Flax and cordaline.
As you can see here the animals have eaten the agapanthus all the way along the driveway. These were not one of my favourite plants but They look great as edging for the drive and nothing eats them, or so I thought.

Come along to the Tasmanian craft fair held in Deloraine from 1st to 4th November. It is a fantastic event with lots to see and do, then pop by the Handweavers spinners and dyers Guild stall where my scarves are for sale along with lots of other goodies from members.

Ready for the craft fair

I have been doing some dyeing for the Tasmanian craft Fair held in Deloraine from 1st to the 4th November. I had lots of fun creating a range of silk scarves dyed either with natural dye or commercial dyes.
They will be for sale, along with lots of other great hand crafted items at the Handweavers, spinners and dyers Guild stall at the fair.
