Where is Isabel?

Don't know if you saw the note I left on 'Written in Exile' to say that I am out of hospital and feeling a little better - still in Melbourne and hoping the Muse will remember me soon.

Marius is returning tomorrow evening to have a short holiday (we hope so, this time) and in a few weeks he will take me back to Exile.

My internet access remains, er, steam-driven, so I am operating under difficulties.

I hope to be back to some sort of order in mid-September.

Best wishes

The Garden at Forster

We are back in Melbourne now.  Our last day with Marius' mum was glorious so I took some photos of her garden to show you.

Ron was a keen landscaper so the garden is very strong on the structure side.  My taste is more for a natural and unkempt look, but that is not their style at all.  Being a seaside garden the plants have to be wind resistant as well as salt tolerant.

I was planning to publish this post on the 20th of July.  The internet service I had purchased failed so I wasn't able to - and since then I have been snowed under with family issues and the collapse of my own health again ...  it appears that I need to get back to having immunoglobulin infusions urgently but none are currently organised.  Ho hum.

I will be back when I can.
