this place

We were very lucky to have the lovely Luisa Brimble visit recently (accompanied by the equally lovely Emma Bowen). I've been admiring Luisa's gorgeous photography for ages and was thrilled when she offered to visit on a workshop day and take some shots for us. Hooray! 

When you've got your eyes to the ground pulling out fireweed and you're running through clouds of flour every day and are too busy worrying about fences to actually look at the paddocks, it's absolutely wonderful to see this place through Luisa's eye. 





Yeah our office really sucks. 





Is it windy where you are? All our infrastructure is portable (and we live on a hill) so big winds kind of freak us out. We've been battening down hatches, moving chicken caravans into sheltered spots, keeping the brooders covered. We lost the trampoline, I believe it is in the hedge on it's way into the coffee grove, but the windmill is standing, the chicken caravan doors haven't blown off and all the children are accounted for. So we're winning.

Yeah, your office does suck, doesn’t it! How do you put up with it?

Actually, I don’t know if I could ever take a view like that for granted, even if I was run-off-my-feet busy like you are. We’ve been living with a view across a few paddocks, that occasionally have cows, but more often kangaroos (and sometimes a couple of foxes – grrrr), for more than a year now, and I can still find myself just sitting a looking at it – very restful.

We are having a short break from the wind here, until the weekend, when I think it may start up again. Also the possibility of snow in the surrounding districts – those poor little lambies, who are new to this world, won’t know what has happened to them!

I absolutely love your photos! Looks like you’re on a stunning plot and I’m totally jealous 😉

If you ever get sick of your office, maybe we can swap.
