 “Let us be grateful to the people who make us happy; they are the charming gardeners who make our souls blossom.”

– Marcel Proust

Home made Truffle Oil 
– Seyen's gift carried in from Croatia opens up new vistas in every day cooking – truffle oil 
drizzled over boiled potatoes for instance. Bruschetta
with black Truffle Oil
.
Count the ways.
Truffle hummus. Great with vegetables. Used as a finishing oil on pizzas. Linguini with mushrooms
in truffle oil
.
Yum! Adventures ahoy!

 Buddha smiles ... and
all's well in the courtyard garden

Seyen in the garden

Precious hours
Fresh from a 19 hour jet flight Seyen Surjan stopped by; en route to join her husband Justin in Rockhampton. Lots to be said – lots left unsaid as when good friends meet after long absences. That marvellous garden we shared in Cooroy. How fond she was of sister Gem. Now much travelled - Africa, Europe, the Americas - I wonder where next before 
we meet again.
Such a day. 

 . . . two new birds for the colletion.
Plentiful in Queensland and northern Australia, this White Bellied Cukoo Shrike (above left) seems to haunt the giant Poincianas down by the river – so close to home: whereas  Bourke's Parrots are birds of the outback – areas dominated by Acacia species,
particularly the mulga
