There's a certain comfort in blogging semi-anonymously, knowing that your caterpillar eaten vegetables and your mini-rants are on display but that you'll never have to look the reader sheepishly in the eye...

But then quite unexpectedly I find that I've discovered a whole new world of friendships, you lovely folk that I've met through this bloggy world. Such gorgeous people who offer understanding, support, advice and kindness - who else can you sob to over fox eaten chickens, who else will understand the anguish of carefully tended vegetables destroyed by slugs overnight, who else shares the simple joy of seed propagation, worm finding, composting...the peaceful contentment that comes from wandering about the garden first thing in the morning with a cup of tea, or sitting out quietly amongst the vegetable beds chooks clucking at your feet.
So...I'd love to meet you - really meet you!
If you're in Melbourne/Victoria and you're interested in meeting up, I'm suggesting we meet:
Sunday 6th November 2011
11am - Garden Tour
(join the free garden tour and I'll meet you there!)
Now I know many of you Victorians live far and wide - so if you have any other suggestion for a meeting place please let me know! I'm happy to change the venue!
How will we recognise each other? Well I've posted pics of myself here before I think...but I'll make sure I wear a yellow bird brooch/necklace! How will I recognise you?
I'd love to see you there.
