Here where I live people open their gardens and people can go through them and have a look. It is a special scheme and I am sure not just anyone can join. But, Mum likes seeing what others ahave done and was especially interested in some vegetable gardens. the first was a normal average sized house block in suburban Melbourne... mmm some good things there!
Talking of figs - Mum bought some, and later was given some, and she shared with me saying "Here Bibs, have some fig - your kind is supposed to like them a LOT". Well, maybe my kind is, but this particular one of my kind does NOT. I threw it on to the floor. I noted I was not given any more! Mum ate them all!
