Who planted these venerable oaks near Taralga...perhaps James or Hannibal Macarthur or one of their shepherds....? So fascinating to visit the day after Camden Park...part of the wonderful landscape of horticulturist Chris Ainsworth ...who is creating garden around his historic stone home... while overseeing A List Goulburn and Taralga gardens as well as back yearly to La Foce in Italy... sigh... @cainsworth_horticulture @camdenparkhouse #taralga#Chris Ainsworth #swipe
Tootled down to Crookwell in the Southern Tablelands to do some serious sock shopping at Lindner Socks (a family owned business who have been making socks since the 1920s) and drove onto Taralga for lunch at The Ploughman Cafe, which has become a favourite of ours. Such a charming village full of quirky houses where quite a few of the villagers (well, yesterday at any rate) seemed to be sitting out on their verandahs chatting and drinking tea. Noticed that The Argyle Inn has opened since we were there last so we'll definitely be going there for lunch. Hopefully sometime soon.
Time to be bored. I had to catch this moment. My son chilled out patting his dog day dreaming. I’m a big believer that kids these days need to learn to be bored. They need time away from all distractions of devices to create, to play, to think and to just be.
