The town also takes a lot of ideas from old towns ..you know the way it used to be before high rise came along and people started living in square boxes with no consideration for aspect or design to suit an area. Although the houses are of similar design there actually isn't two the same as each is designed for that particular block of land . High ceilings , rectangular windows and lovely old fashioned verandas just right for sitting and having a yarn with neighbours make them very livable .
The town has a community vegetable garden complete with 2 chooks, Josephine and Isabella. Local dog Missy checks on them everyday . Actually there are quite a few local dogs which is lovely since we lost our Cavvy Monty last year . They all call in to say hi while on their walks with their mums and dads . So far we have met Tiny , Trevor and Audi as well as daily visits from Missy .
As a result of a good harvest of pumpkins this year we are having a cook off competition ...AND this is where you all become involved ...a cry for H_E_L_P on my part as I am surely a better artist than a cook and I need your help to come up with a good recipe..one that a not so good cook like me can whip up and look impressive LOL.. At Kathy's blogspot I have decided to have our very own competition , a competition within a competition that involves you all . The winning recipe for a great pumpkin dish (that will make me look like a fabulous cook!) will win this original 12" x 16" oil painting called "The veggie Patch" signed by myself the artist . So please join in the fun and send me your best tried and true pumpkin recipe by the 18th May...Competition is open to all ..I will send the painting to the winner anywhere WW free post.
Please just post your recipe on this blog ..Or if you aren't a follower just email it to me ( why not take this oportunity to become a follower , It cost nothing to follow this blog and you can see what I have painted most days and sometimes before it goes onto ebay ) ,
looking forward to reading your comments ...this could be fun !!
