My mum turns 80 today! Here she is as a three year old in 1942 with her uncle Jeff and an orphaned joey. This was on a farm my grandmother’s family were developing on infertile coastal plains at Inverloch in South Gippsland after escaping years of drought in the Mallee. Jeff died a year later shot down over Libya in a Hurricane during the Second World War. Anyway, after a 50 year career as a nurse my mum is still gardening and while as Anglo Celtic as you can get a huge eater of her son’s Taro and Yams Crops!
