Apart from her inspired painting and her love of a good drop of either red or white, Gabi has always had a love of watching things grow.
Since taking up residence in our little cottage in the Hunter region at Fern Bay NSW, she has attempted to brighten up the entrance to our humble abode with the addition of many colourful plants, flowers and herbs and spices etc.

Along with the basic herbs Oregano, Thyme, Dill, Rosemary, Curly and Italian Parsley, when in season we also have Tomatoes, Silver Beet, Carrots and Onions that always taste much better than the ones bought at the supermarket.
