Of course when your passion is gardens are you are in sunny Switzerland, you’re never on holiday!

My sister in laws vegetable garden, with the neighbour's chickens and Floxie the ancient pony in the background. Lise was making a new bed of strawberries with runners from the old bed, as strawberry plants only do well for 3-4 years so need replacing. To buy a whole new bed of plants at $7 each would be expensive so she creates a new bed every couple of years or so with free plants from the old ones.

Red currants in Switzerland. I gave up growing currants in my part of Melbourne some time ago as it's just too hot and often too dry for them but here they thrive! This is the garden of my sister's 90 year old neighbour after she harvested a huge bucket of them for us. Tart but tasty, they are full of vitamin C and are delicious eaten with Swiss stuff like yoghurt for breakfast or as a pick me up snack.
