Autumn Journal: Crepe Myrtle

Being in the subtropics, we don't get a really dramatic Autumn, so I appreciate the humble Crepe Myrtle for its beautiful Autumn display. The gorgeous russet against the magnificent blue sky gladdened my heart in amongst a week that seems to have been punctuated by tantrums about everything. I keep waiting for them to grow out of things...but I guess it's just a season, like Autumn. Meanwhile, I'm just trying to be the sane one.

Autumn Journal: Grapefruit

It's beautiful to have generous neighbours who share their homegrown fruit and vegetables - and great sense of humour - with us. Yummy grapefruit! I'm looking forward to exploring some new grapefruit recipes with these beauties.
