As Valentine's Day aproaches it's got me thinking.....
If your like me and need a little
help in the love department why not try a little magic?
Get out your cauldron and whip up a
batch of Love Potion to get the "juices" flowing!

Morton Bay Fig Trees with the crazy big roots. It would be like living
in "The Faraway Tree" (but with all the mod-cons, of course).
Morton Bay Fig Tree, Sydney
