Chicken no.1 was thrilled today when the post arrived! She had written a letter to Jackie French about her book How to Guzzle Your Garden, and had asked if she had any spare loquat trees. Today she received a reply with some loquat shoots! How great is that?! I imagine that Jackie has plenty of fan mail to reply to, and was quite touched that she took the time to hand write a letter and pick some shoots from her garden. Lovely.
We have her Fair Dinkum Histories series too, which is very easy to read (when you're old enough for the details!) - it's amazing how much Australian history I have learnt recently!
