Connecting with nature is vital to our mental and emotional health argues Richard Louv, whom I recently heard interviewed on Radio National. He coined the term "nature deficit disorder" and talks about the importance for children especially to play outdoors and get to know the natural world. Witnessing the abundant wildlife on our property always brings a smile to my face. The day I took this photo in the vegetable garden I also saw two tiny frogs, loads of birds, rabbits and wallabies. Ok - I do sometimes curse the rabbits and wallabies.....
When I am not busy sewing down at our island retreat, I love spending time in my organic edible garden or in the kitchen.
