No more soap sales + being copied

I have discontinued soap sales, at least temporarily. I have had a lot of fun over 18 years making soap and meeting so many other interesting people. Thank you everyone .
Maybe I will get back to it again later, but meanwhile I will be making only for personal use and gifting..

Lillian Frazer Garden

yesterday a few of us gathered there to learn something of the history of the garden and the woman.
none of us took a camera.... so today i went back to do a few photos.
Unfortunately i choose high noon, which made it hard for my poor olde camera, and has made
 too many shots too  light.It was a very very sunny day.
 sadly i am not clever enough to rearrange that bad lighting, so i will simply put the pics
 up as a memory to a lovely suburban garden, a pleasant day out
 and an interesting woman ...Lillian Frazer, whose garden is only a few blocks from mine
double click the photos to enlarge.
seeing as i dont know the names of most of the plants....i have left them unnamed.!!

a so called pom pom tree.....which obviously fascinates me!!














a lady working in the garden took me aside to show me this plant. she does not know its name.
she says it is rare in australia. it has a star shaped leaf and a star shaped flower.
