As I was idly flipping through assorted other Blogspot sites using the "next blog" button at the top of most Blogspot pages, I came across this little gem.
I've put up a link to it on the right hand side of these pages, just because I like what Judith in New Zealand is doing.
In her own words she's "Fighting Creeping Decrepitude and living a back-to-basics lifestyle in a remote and isolated part of the Tararua District of New Zealand, surrounded by a wildly overgrown garden and sheep, cows, chooks, bunnies, and other assorted wildlife..."
Judith lives somewhere not a million miles away from here (the mountain range shares its name with her dwelling place, Tararua):And her garden looks like this (if I didn't know better, I'd think she might be trying to put the Millbrooker Towers' weedpatch to shame):
Give it a try - you might enjoy her style as well; amongst other things there's some cool music by Richard Thompson that she's posted and some enjoyable writing about her lifestyle.
