We are couch surfing again and have been very lucky to stay with Marion. Her house is in Richmond, a suburb within a 20 minute bike ride of the CBD and it is flat and has bike paths all the way, but a further bonus is if you are on a seniors card you get free rides on the public transport. Matilda fits nicely into a corner of the drive.
Marion has a very interesting garden it is a permaculture design and is a rustic mix of vegies, herbs, fruit trees and flowers. At this time of the year many of the plants have gone to seed but the idea of permaculture is to leave them all to self sow. We find a lovely selection of greens and herbs for our meals
