“If you have a garden and a library, you have everything you need.”

Part of the Head On Photo Festival, Sydney’s Customs House Library is transformed with garden effects. I’d like the “garden” behind the main desk in my living room.

About EllaDee's daleleelife101.blog

After a decade of living in tiny apartments in the inner-city of Sydney, Australia with my husband referred to in my posts as the Gorgeous One (G.O.) while I worked in corporate-legal and the G.O. in civil earthworks we relocated 500 kilometres north in December 2015 to our home in the Nambucca Valley to follow our dream of living simply and creatively. We travelled around Australia in 2016. Now we work on our 1930’s house, have a vegetable garden and a dog plus share a flock of backyard chickens with our neighbour. These days I’m a horticulture student, something I dreamed of doing for many years. From time to time I write about day-to-day life, past & present, people & places, and take snapshots with my smart phone. Copyright 2011-2017.

  1. I couldn’t agree more – a garden and a library would provide me with all the fun I really need:)
    I’m so glad to see the Customs House looking so fabulous. I did catch a glimpse of it on one of my flying visits some years ago when I went to eat at a restaurant there (can’t remember the name, it was a big treat), and I could see they’d done some renovations – but sad to say I never went back in daylight hours to check it out.
    So, thanks for a glimpse into the present:)

    • Lucky you if you went to Cafe Sydney 🙂 Lucky me as it’s my local library & my work place is adjacent. It’s worth a daylight look when you’re back in town.

      • Ah yes, Cafe Sydney, that’s right! Yes, it was a treat – memorable meal and great fun. I’ll remember to pop in next time I’m home – maybe next summer. Think it’s time. Haven’t been for more than three or four days at a time for way too long:)
