Each day gets busier here and we're almost back into full working mode. My online Zoom workshops start tomorrow and I'm excited about meeting all the ladies face-to-face and being able to talk about how we live. I'm also negotiating simple life workshops for the Kuringai, Willoughby and North Sydney Councils so stay tuned for news about those in the near future.
The comfrey is flowering and is thick and lush. Soon I'll cut it back and use the leaves as mulch for the roses, herbs and citrus.
My first ABC Radio slot is next Thursday, February 4. I'll let you know on Instagram what the link is for that. My main work, apart from responding to emails, has been to work out guidelines and notes for myself for all these workshops. Today I'll sign up for my Zoom account and do a dry run to make sure I know what I'm doing. It might be a great opportunity to have a get-together with my sister. It's good to get back to work. I've enjoyed the break but I like the excitement of starting new things.
This is Comtesse de Labarthe also known as the Montville Rose. It's a heritage French rose and it's a good one for you if you want to start growing roses. It sends out a lot of flowers if you fertilise and water it regularly, like most roses. It has fewer thorns than other roses and is disease resistant.
Okay, I'd best get started. I hope you're staying healthy but if you're living with Covid in close proximity, please be careful and let us know how you're getting on.
