Seeing one of the themes for the 365 project is going to be change I thought I'd start a series of photos todsy . This is the view from my desk as I sit here at my computer. I have always wanted to have this room as my office because I love the outlook onto one of my favourite parts of the garden and now as Kate has left home I have done a whole lot of furniture moving and cleaning before christmas and here is my new outlook. I will be adding shots as the seasons change and I will be including some other garden shots for those other horticulturally obsessed like myself. I have a large garden which I despair about sometimes but I also love the way it draws me out of the house and makes me get active. I am so much a part of the seasons up here and this is summer. As I write my resident handyperson who has finished two sections of deck beautifully, is working on ivy removal from a tree fern. Controlling the ivy is an eternal battle here as it strangles trees and carpets the beds making it impossible for our native animals like lyrebirds to forage. After the tedious removal comes the cleanup and maintenance.
