I just had lunch at a friend's house ... warm lentil soup and slices of fruit and cheese ... but that's not what I'm going to write about today. Today I'm going to tell you about her garden.

After lunch, we all headed into the backyard - my friend and I, our two little girls, (and the baby asleep). The sun was out, for the first time in a week. And I gaped at 8' high tomato plants, and strawberries already fruiting, and a celery forest, and pumpkin vines climbing up kaffir lime tree and fig tree and fence.

All in inner city Brisbane. In a backyard that still has ample room to run around.

It's inspiring, to say the least. And the best part of all? She shares. This is what I came home with ...

So now, the exciting bit ... playing with all the mint and sage and celery and garlic chives and kaffir lime leaves! Ah, the possibilities ...

Oh, I love my friends. Especially those with gardens.
