How Tammy Talks
'Get out of it Ya little Crowmite!" She pretend-scolds her determined and inquisitive 18 month old. A bit of Aussie slang Tammy inherited from her dear dad.
"If you keep that up, I'll tell ya to grab your sugarbag and get on your wallaby' she will tell you for your bad behaviour. Like helping out too much, when you should be just enjoying.
Yes, words from the farmhouse to the itenerant Swaggies who aren't pulling their weight.
Aw, don't kick me out Tammy, I love it here.
She is powerful, a natural Permaculture designer, which includes being positive and in-action. Plus just adoreable.

"Cecilia is a great presenter, Enthusiam is infectious. I was surprised how many people would like plants in exchange for services."

'Share whats spare' They had had enough of sitting on the ground.
The next day at the farmers market, news of the workshop had already spread.
"Hey, my sister did your workshop yesterday. Ferral-Sheryl, the blonde. I'm spitting chips that I missed it. Wanna come on my radio show this afternoon?"
Then we visited Tammy's farm, heard her plans for expanding her Relm.
All this was underwater in the floods of last year.
Imagine it. The whole place under one horizon of water, everything connected by the water, waving about unseen.

Maybe I will get an invite next time.
