HAPPY Father's Day to my wonderful Dad who I am sure will manage a quiet beer over there on the Sunshine Coast - my parents new home as of this week! Tasmanians who are now Queenslanders...who'd have thought! . . #fathersday #dads #love #distance
THE things you hold on to! My past life was spent in the travel industry and I have been so lucky to travel and see some amazing places and more importantly meet life long friends. A week at home has enabled me to take some time and look through old photos and trinkets... these ones a Moscow underground map, a Scandi overnight ferry ticket, and something completely in Russian which looks very very important (all c.1997). Perhaps it's important to hold onto nostalgia! It made me smile after a tough week or so. . . #gardeninginperth #gardening #veggarden #backyardpatch #backyardveggies #gardeningwhilerenting #gardeninginpots #fifowife #husbandhasagreenthumb #lovegardening #winterinperth #firsthome #firsthomeperth #firsthomebuilders #perthisok #ellenbrook #terrace #terraceliving #travel #travelindustry #sometimesimissit #travelfriends
PEOPLE think that cats are all about themselves...perhaps, but this one here has not left my side the past few days. Like all pets they know when their owner (read: feeder) is not ๐Ÿ’ฏ....I'd rather think that, than the more probable reason of it being too wet and cold to venture outside! . . #gardeninginperth #gardening #veggarden #backyardpatch #backyardveggies #gardeningwhilerenting #gardeninginpots #fifowife #husbandhasagreenthumb #lovegardening #winterinperth #firsthome #firsthomeperth #firsthomebuilders #perthisok #ellenbrook #terrace #terraceliving #catsofinsta #catsofinstagram
WHEN you're not feeling yourself you find you crave 'home' and the familiar...this is my 'home' pictured today. I've lived in Perth about 16 years but there are days I ache for this place...although perhaps not the cold! ๐Ÿ“ทPic: Deni Cupit . . #gardeninginperth #gardening #veggarden #backyardpatch #backyardveggies #gardeningwhilerenting #gardeninginpots #fifowife #husbandhasagreenthumb #lovegardening #winterinperth #firsthome #firsthomeperth #firsthomebuilders #perthisok #ellenbrook #terrace #terraceliving #home #childhoodhome #hobart #mtwellington #winterinhobart
PRETTY excited by this picture! Our finger lime is looking so good. Loaded with flowers so lets hope it's another good crop. For those persevering with a young plant, this one is about 6 years old and we have only had fruit the past 2 years. Each year slightly better - don't give up on your finger lime - they're so worth it! Just have to hope fruit sets before the wind hits Perth! . . #gardeninginperth #gardening #veggarden #backyardpatch #backyardveggies #gardeningwhilerenting #gardeninginpots #fifowife #husbandhasagreenthumb #lovegardening #winterinperth #firsthome #firsthomeperth #firsthomebuilders #perthisok #ellenbrook #terrace #terraceliving #fingerlimes
THIS is one of my favourite paintings...La Vucciria by Sicilian painter Renato Guttuso. Every now and then I take the time to really look at it and every time I see something new. I just love it!

TONKA beans...I discovered these a few years ago whilst studying and love them! Brilliant in panna cotta and any other infused cream. An almond and vanilla cross! Use sparingly though! . . #gardeninginperth #gardening #veggarden #backyardpatch #backyardveggies #gardeningwhilerenting #gardeninginpots #fifowife #husbandhasagreenthumb #lovegardening #winterinperth #firsthome #firsthomeperth #firsthomebuilders #perthisok #ellenbrook #terrace #terraceliving #kitchenismyhappyplace #lcb #gastronomictourism #culinarytourism #foodmemories
