Find this story In a "Picnic Chatter" to come.

This heart warming day was a really lovely family picnic with Russell. He is someone... well, a special dusty sheep... who had a beautiful connection with a couple of the younger members of our family! Our woolly friend Russell, joined us for this bush picnic.

See his loving face at our table below... he might look as though he needs a bit of a wash, but he does live in a dusty paddock!

Russell's caring, scruffy, paddock friends, did something so very special and moving for him!

It warms my heart and brings a happy tear to my eye to think about it.

I will share his story with you... I'm sure you will love it too!

Enjoy those extra ideas for a picnic, found while hunting through old school recipe books... some of those books put together by the Mothers, to raise money for their schools. They have some great recipes and ideas.

Then yarns, like the romantic picnic by a little creek, or the picnic on horseback in a storm, or new years eve at the beach!
