Country Style

Way back in June, Country Style magazine came to visit us.  Back then we were in our winter clothes, the garden was full of winter vegetables and our paddocks were lush and green.  It feels like so much has happened and changed since then.  I took one photo for the whole day and it was taken on my phone.

It feels quite surreal to appear in one of my all time favourite magazines.  

A special thank you to Claire Mactaggart for making all of the arrangements and for her patience as she pieced together our story.  If you are interested we are in the December issue, on sale today.

Friends, I hope you are having a lovely week.
