One of my dogs came back from Ozz with me the last one I aquired was left abandoned on the hill near my house, we took him in after asking around and putting an ad in the shop to see if he was missing. He was really skinny and in bad condition when I got him but as you can see he is looking better now and has a ball in the big garden with the other two.

Trust that all are well and enjoying the Spring weather and all there is to do in the garden. It is Autumn were I am. Yes, I moved back to Australia in August of last year and in October bought a small minerís cottage in Beaconsfield Northern Tasmania to be precise. The reasonably large garden is keeping me busy, the freezer is full and have plenty of relish stored away. Now I am planting for winter, broad beans, cabbage family, onion family etc. Got myself a dog for company and am volunteering at the local online centre, seniors kiosk through U3A and the Tamar Telegraph tamartelegraph.com.au.

How are you finding Tassy? One of the last jobs I did before leaving Aussie was laying a gas pipeline across the Bass Strait and I loved the look of Tasmania.
I have 6 acres here in Connemara, and have been reclaiming the garden over the last couple of years, its a full time job which is just as well as other work is hard to come by here, at the moment I am logging trees that came down in the winter storms.

I miss Australia a lot when the weather is ordinary here, especially swimming and sailing which I used to do a lot of. anyway the boat is back in the water so I have my fingers crossed for some free time to get out there.

Now greengage you come across as a very well informed, articulate and knowledgeable person so methinks you know the answer to that one a long time ago.
