Diggers on the loose.

Yesterday, on the most gloriously sunny Tuesday, I visited Heronswood at Dromana with my beautiful Mum and the littles. Mum bought me a Diggers membership for my birthday last week to help kickstart my plans to turn our garden into a largely edible one.

The grounds of Heronswood are so beautiful with inspiration galore for novice gardeners (like me!).

I found the organic and sustainable approach particularly inspiring. The archways above are that steel that you see on building sites to reinforce concrete. They are perfect for growing climbers but I reckon they'd also keep the deer off the vegie patch.

I have a thing for ginkgo that harks back to my Herbal Medicine days. And that view! I'd trade my mountain for it. How fickle am I!

And of course we had to have a bit of beach time seeing as we were so close to it.

Thanks for the awesome present Mum, as well as your kid wrangling assistance and your excellent company. Let's go again in Autumn and go crazy on heirloom vegie seedlings...

I've been wanting to go there for the longest time with my parents, but think of it as being such a long way for a day trip. Did you have lunch there too?
