Seeds planted long ago

December 8, 2011

Today, as I watched some kangaroos hop slowly through our garden as though it was their own (and it is really), I suddenly remembered visiting friends on Molloy Island in south Western Australia nearly 20 years ago and being so impressed by the kangaroos hopping between the houses and the policy of no fences. We tried to buy land on Molloy Island but the bank wouldn’t lend us the money because we were working in Japan and insisted we had to have a guarantor. We gave up on this idea but clearly the idea of living an eco-life must have planted the seeds for the life we live now.

    Enjoyed your blog Fillipa – great life for the children. Hope the kangas don’t eat your plants

    Thanks Judy. They help to keep our rather wild garden tame!
