Look what I found in my local butcher shop at Treendale!
Fresh local South West walnuts which take me back to my childhood in the South East of South Australia where the most amazing walnut tree was to be found on our farm.
I enjoyed a constant supply of fresh walnuts and the company of the amazing tree from which they came. A huge tree that provided shade on hot days a place to escape to as I remember climbing up into it to pause and ponder or read undisturbed!
Thinking back, I enjoyed a lot of slow living as a young girl, growing up on a farm in South Australia and surrounded by natural beauty. Children don’t think about going slow, they just peer at things and observe the detail of the world around them. Part of slow living is rediscovering the beauty that children see in the world by taking time to notice and observe the things around me. It’s about slowing down the adult mind and letting the inner child be free.
