Aphrodite’s Garden

Legend has it, the Goddess Aphrodite created aromatic oregano as a symbol of joy and grew it in her garden on Mount Olympus.

It’s in flower at the moment in my garden and there’s ample for cooking and creating.

Refreshingly Festive

We just had a weekend of perfect summer days.

Saturday we had lunch on our new deck and on Sunday went to afternoon drinks at a friend’s place.

The sunny weather inspired me to make a punch and my friend had the perfect punch bowl.

She also has borage growing and the flowers made a pretty addition to my concoction – it was festive and refreshing!

Pimm's punch

Both days were warm enough to linger outside into the evening (a novelty in Hobart even in summer).

I’ve decided this summer should be ‘the summer of punch’ – I must plant some borage in my garden…
