I have been playing tourist guide to my Mum and Auntie this week, but despite the name 'Sunshine Coast' all we have had is rain for a couple of days so we were looking for somewhere to go that wouldn't be too outdoors.
We chose the Buderim Ginger Factory which is always on our list when Mum comes for a visit and we take a wander around the gardens to see the beautiful varieties of ginger plants and their amazing flowers. A highlight of the visit is always morning tea where we have Ginger Scones with cream and ginger jam. It is just gorgeous!
I'm going to try growing my own edible ginger as I have always grown ornamental ginger plants and they grow easily and well in our climate. Growing my own will give me fresh ginger for cooking as well as ginger for making our own ginger beer at Christmas time.
Over the next few weeks my blogging will be mainly about touring around our local area of the Sunshine Coast as I show my Mum and Aunty around. I hope you will enjoy being a virtual tourist with us.
