Take Over

The day finally arrived! On Thursday we travelled to visit our new farm. We took with us a lime tree and a lemon tree that were beginning to look a little sick on the balcony of our inner-city apartment. They were to find their new home among the gum trees.

We stopped in at the Guildford store for a home-made lunch - sausage rolls and schnitzel rolls - which I can highly recommend.

We took our time planting our little fruit trees, checking out the fences and the dams, assessing the state of the grazing land and its potential - all the time surrounded by many, many butterflies. Glorious.

Here are some snaps.

I helped!

And the big news? We got engaged! Marcus proposed at the highest point on the farm (affectionately named Hilly Rock Rock) and of course I said YES! Now it looks like we have two great things to plan for!
