After four delightful weeks of traveling around the great lands of Australia and New Zealand, Richard and I are returned home. I am very happy to be back in my own bed and seeing my garden in its spring glory, but sad to be away from so many of the people I love on the other side of the world. Heart and place combine to make home. It has been a joy to spend time in both of mine (the drawing above is courtesy of the Boltmans’ of East St Kilda, what a lovely welcome we received).
