The Farm, part 2


Anonymous Anonymous said...

These give a wonderful sense of the little farm and our holiday there with the quiet, the space, the beauty of God's creation, friends visiting from Victoria and also Adelaide and Gretta's initiative and plans to extend and refurbish the cottage, and our trip through Bendigo to Melbourne - (Gretta's) David

is that a real plant on top of the drawers, in the photo of David? how does it stay alive when you aren't there to water it?

It's actually a huge bunch of crysanthemums which Chris Cameron brought on her visit. They lasted for weeks and weeks - obviously the flowers to buy for long-lastingness.

Hi Gretta. I love the photos of the farm, after hearing about it for so long it is nice to see what it actually looks like.

Hi Mum. So great to see the farm again - its like a part of me. It looks very dry, poor Australia she must be so thirsty.

Good of Chris to stick with name sake, crysanthemums. plus its true from my point of view... crys an' the mums.

Very clever, Sam. Funny that Oz looks dry to you - for the farm, it was comparitevely green, and further east - Goulburn etc - was much worse.

Isn't the farm lovely? It's 2 years since I've been there. I know what you mean, Sam, about it feeling a part of you. Hopefully I'll go there in July.

we had some crysanthemums here which lasted for ages and ages too. i'm not sure if i like them much though

....why are they the traditional flower for mums? and do we all remember how to spell it because of that scene in 'anne of green gables'?

Yes!! I owe such a lot to Anne of GG. I think the Mothers'Day tradition is because of the 'mums' in the name, which is pretty twee. Actually, they do smell rather awful, but I like their bronzeness. I realize how brown the farm looks after seeing Becca's & Sam's green green Hampshire pics.
