Description

In A Fig at the G ate , author Kate Llewellyn, now in her seventies, embraces a new phase in her life, asking the question, 'How does one live well?'

Following the joyful crafting of her gardens in the Blue Mountains ( The Waterlily ) and north of Wollongong ( Playing with Water ), Kate creates a new garden near the sea in Adelaide, planting olives, plums, limes and blood oranges, learning how to keep poultry, setting a duck on eggs. Delight and enrichment come with the learning of new skills, being close to family and old friends, long companionable beach walks, rediscovering old recipes, food and wine.

Accepting what she cannot change while relishing what she has, Kate shares the beauties and frailties of the human condition and shows us what the gifts of ageing can bring.
