Read­ers en­gage with cook­ing, craft and a mys­tery re­vealed.

The hand­made is­sue has inspired me to pur­sue a more artis­tic lifestyle, and at­tempt to cre­ate some­thing unique and beau­ti­ful. See­ing a snap­shot of the lives of such cre­ative peo­ple in the May is­sue made me re­alise that artists are not elu­sive peo­ple who live ex­clu­sive lives, they’re sim­ply reg­u­lar peo­ple who are more in touch with their imag­i­na­tion and take the time to pur­sue cre­ativ­ity. I’m now at­tempt­ing to get in touch with my imag­i­na­tive side and to be cre­ative in var­i­ous ways at least once a week. Thanks again for con­tin­u­ing to de­liver an en­ter­tain­ing and vis­ually stun­ning mag­a­zine. Inspired by Steve Cumper’s ‘Sim­mer Down’ in the May is­sue, I start dream­ing about what I’ll put in to­mor­row’s veg­etable casse­role.we’ve har­vested lots of sweet pota­toes, chillies, chokos and jerusalem ar­ti­chokes, and the dried beans are soak­ing. The news re­port says there’s flood­ing in coastal NSW and Queens­land. My thoughts re­turn to the casse­role, and to how grate­ful I am that we have power to cook, and a safe and dry home to en­joy Sun­day lunch. I only hope that the peo­ple suf­fer­ing as a re­sult of the east coast rains and winds, and the tire­less SES work­ers, will soon be able to en­joy a hearty home-cooked casse­role.we take so much for granted, in­clud­ing the abil­ity to harvest and cook, and hav­ing a dry place to lay our heads at night. Have you ever ad­mired a dreamy prop­erty from the fence line and won­dered what it looked like be­hind the trees? Re­cently we took the plunge and re­lo­cated from the NSW cen­tral coast to the lit­tle English-style vil­lage of West­bury in Tas­ma­nia’s Me­an­der Val­ley. And now ev­ery day I drive past a stun­ning gar­den, won­der­ing what it’s like in­side. To my de­light, when I opened the May Coun­try Style, I saw my mys­tery prop­erty was fea­tured in all its beauty on page 52. Con­grat­u­la­tions to Di­nah Fitzger­ald and Philip Leith for pre­serv­ing this won­der­ful gar­den and shar­ing your lit­tle piece of heaven with us. Also a huge thanks to Coun­try Style for the great Tas­ma­nian sto­ries.
