 Last week we went to Agfest in Tassie. I got all nostalgic for mud, dairy cows and calves... and the old tractors of my childhood on a dairy farm at West Pine, on the north west coast of Tas. I remember it as a fairytale place, the creeks, dams, ferns, platypus and beautiful garden and orchard, all very idyllic. And seeing fairies, pixies, elves with my grandfather, we really did!!!

 My friend's mare and foal on Pete's old family farm here on Flinders, that has just been sold again.
 This is the clutch in the farm's old Bedford truck. It is an old door hinge. The truck used to be on an outer island and necessity was  the mother of invention out there!
 My latest baby cardi, copied from Pea Soup! For my neice's baby due in September.
 Pillingers Peak, we painted yesterday.
Opposite Pillingers is Strezlecki.
