Sunday at the Tulip Farm

We haven’t had many nice days lately so we took advantage of fine weather to visit the Table Cape Tulip Farm. Last year we saw a lot of dogs there so this year Toby and Teddy came with us. They had a ball, a long walk and they met lots of dogs.

My own tulips at home have been a bit of a failure this year. I don’t know why; but Naomi has some very nice ones come up. I took photos of the tulips varieties we would like to buy for next year.Here are some of them.

Red Gold, I love a red tulip.

Of course I took pictures of the massed rows of flowers. There really aren’t any I don’ t like.



I was born in England in 1957 and lived there until our family came to Australia in 1966. I grew up in Adelaide, South Australia, where I met and married my husband, David. We came together over a mutual love of trains. Both of us worked for the railways for many years, his job was with Australian National Railways, while I spent 12 years working for the STA, later TransAdelaide the Adelaide city transit system. After leaving that job I worked in hospitality until 2008. We moved to Tasmania in 2002 to live in the beautiful Huon Valley. In 2015 David became ill and passed away in October of that year. I currently co-write two blogs on with my sister Naomi. Our doll blog "Dolls, Dolls, Dolls", and "Our Other Blog" which is about everything else but with a focus on photographs and places in Tasmania. In November 2019 I began a new life in the house that Naomi and I intend to make our retirement home at Sisters Beach in Tasmania's northwest. Currently we have five pets between us. Naomi's two dogs Toby and Teddy and cats, Tigerwoods and Panther and my cat Polly. My dog Cindy passed away aged 16 in April 2022.
