We left Astrid in front of the fire, all tucked up cosy and warm, then drove off down the peninsula to Dromana to meet friends for lunch at Diggers, Heronswood. Heronswood is in Dromana and has every fruit, vegetable, tree, plant, flower that is listed in the Diggers books. They specialise in heirloom varieties and I get my seeds mostly from them. Heronswood house itself was constructed in 1866. It is just a gorgeous place to hang out and recharge, the gardens are amazing.
Babaco - I planted one this summer but it is tiny compared to this beauty!
Orange tamarillo - these do well in shade apparently so I'll have to get some!
The cafe is beautiful and features produce from their enormous kitchen gardens.
This outdoor table is amazing and I'm definitely going to steal this idea at some stage!
There is a rather charming children's garden which I was thinking my chickens would love!
An amazing herb garden with varieties I've never seen before
On the way home in the late afternoon we stopped by Flinders. It has changed so much in the last 15 years since I've been. The strip has increased - not by much though - and there are the cutest shops!
Absolutely gorgeous lamps by Have You Met Miss Jones?
Not bad to have enjoyed and done all that all by 4pm! Now for home and 'think' about cleaning the house...
