Brave, hardy, honourable and strong.
You cut down trees, battled the cooch, smashed up concrete, erected a chicken coop and nestled little seedlings into cosy beds of straw.
The rain poured down but this did nothing to hinder you.
You kept at it until darkness enveloped our small suburban yard.
Our chickens now have a home.
Our front garden has become an orchard.
Herbs and vegetables surround our back porch.
Fragrant flowers greet us on arrival and drift in through open windows.
We have a garden.
Neighbours poke their heads over the fence as they pass by with approving smiles and encouraging words.
As we water each day and feed the chooks, we are humbled by your kindness and hard work.
Thank you dear friends.
And a special thank you to Isobel for her beautiful garden design and all her hard work planning and preparing for the day.
