After Farm Girls goat paddock daisy chain incident of last week
this weeks Sage, The Goat Herd, was reminded of the words of one of her favourite sages, Mr Tom Petty.
Here on the Homestead, we’re all realistic enough to know you can’t spend all your hours hiding from your troubles and worries among the wildflowers, either literally or figuratively. Being part of the real world means you have to get out into the fray and being human means that your will have your fair share of worries and troubles.
We do, however, believe wholeheartedly that everyone needs a place they can hang out without question and be themselves without apology; Everyone deserves their own wildflowers hideaway.
Today is Nana’s 80th birthday. Alzheimers has her very firmly in its horrid grip and she spends a lot of her time snoozing now.
Dancing among the wildflowers.

Happy, happy birthday to your grandmother. What a marvelous picture!
Nana was quite the dancer in her youth and won many ribbons 😊
A photograph that must bring back happy memories, what a beauty she was.
She was styly and gracious and so funny in an understated way 😊
Hi, I am happy to say it is possible to hide among the wildflowers at present as the surrounding bushland is colourful with early spring wildflowers, wattle and grevilleas. It is a treat to head off into the bush for an hour or so.
I am sure it was a treat to eat the chocolate and orange cake made by the Goat Herd.
At this time of year you can’t beat our corner of the planet. We are loving discovering our new garden as it wakes up.
We call it filling your joy cup & that is exactly what being amongst the wildflowers will do & I’m sure that delicious looking cake as well as reminiscing about great times with your Nana. Happy Birthday to your Nana, that is a beautiful photo.
I like that: filling your joy cup. Thanks 😊
New and old memories to hoard against the unrelenting battery of reality. Hide among the wild flowers as much as you can.
Thats the plan 😊
This is such a wonderful post! Belated happy birthday to Nana and my very best wishes to all you special people!
Thank you, Clare.
I didn’t miss this one, just didn’t really know what to say (me without words?:)). Being a human in the real world sucks sometimes. Watching someone so full of life and style and grace and personality slowly dissolve into Alzheimers is one of those times. So not fair. However, I’m glad there are pictures and memories to get you through the dark places of this part of the journey, and the tight knit family that you clearly are. A splendid legacy in which Nana herself undoubtedly played no small part.
Its a truly horrid disease; Nana truly deserved better
