Turmeric, pink geranium, some beautiful purple leafed tree, kangaroo paw, tiny little purple bell flowers and spinach (which is just out of the picture and pretty unimpressive), in anticipation of about a hundred kilograms of Alpaca I’m picking up from Summertown today, and my brand new (old and fixed and serviced) Ashford spinning wheel I’m collecting from Ron, the spinning wheel whisperer, tomorrow, to spin my way through the summer, waiting for the seductress that is Australia’s most soulless city to release her grip on us for good.
