A little bit of country...

It's just so nice to be back at Tarzali, even if it's only for a week. When we turn off the highway just south of Innnisfail and start heading for the mountains, we always feel a step up in our excitement levels, and then there's a real lift to our hearts as we come up the Palmerston Range and at last reach the Tablelands, and see its green hills and dales rolling out in front of us. Usually it's afternoon when we arrive and the sun is making soft velvety shadows on the hills. Just gorgeous. We minutely inspect our plants, because even after a short time away, there's always something new to discover.
Oh, and I now have my revisions and they're light -- which is (believe me) a phew moment. I'll be working on them this weekend, in between stints of planting a new garden on the bank directly in front of the house. Thought I'd show you the views from my study here.

Looking ahead...

To my right, there's the lovely new dining room which we built last year, with all the recycled windows Elliot lovingly restored.

And then this is part of my view to my left. We haven't mowed the grass yet, so it's not the whole view -- looks untidy at the mo, so didn't want to show you that. Perfectionist? Moi?
