Below is a sketch I made sitting on the veranda at 'Fernhill' in Queensland, my sister and her hub's 5 acre farm. I spent last week there taking a well earned holiday from everything. We talked and talked, sat by the slow combustion fire sipping red wine, collaborated on some art , read, ate well, caught up on some sleep and relaxed big time!
These are three mango trees and a lush orange tree to the right. The dam lies at the bottom of the hill, where I patted 'Max' the horse, disturbed a cane toad (erk!) watched ducks, rabbits, red dragonflies, birds and butterflies. I visited the quaint country town of Gympie and enjoyed the hibiscus still in bloom .... then back home again with a fresh outlook on life! Thanks for having me stay, Helen & Al!
