Hello, dear humans! It's me, Flora – not just any pig, but your future best friend and the unofficial but totally necessary welcoming committee of Tomah Retreat, nestled in the heart of the breathtaking Blue Mountains, NSW.

March is upon us, and oh, how the tables have turned in our little slice of paradise. The air is getting crisper, the mist rolls in like a dreamy blanket in the evenings, and the world here is painted in the most vibrant shades of green you could imagine. It's like stepping into a fairy tale, but with me as your guide, it becomes a funny tale of adventure and snorts!

The chickens are in a frenzy, and can you blame them? The worms are throwing a party, and everyone's invited – well, every chicken that is. And me, of course, I never miss a party. But between you and me, I'm more interested in the veggie crop. Ah, the last of it is just divine! I've been munching on the remnants of our lush garden, savouring every delicious moment before the season changes.

Now, I have a very special invitation for you. How would you like to receive a piggy kiss from yours truly? Yes, it's a once-in-a-lifetime offer! Visit us in March, and not only will you get to enjoy the cooler weather, the enchanting mist, and the lush greenery, but you'll also have the honor of a piggy kiss. I'm practicing my pucker just for you!

Imagine cozying up by the fireplace in one of our beautiful studios – "Chill," "Breathe," or "Relax" – each with its own charm and surrounded by nature's beauty. And the animals! Oh, you'll meet them all: the mini horses with their naughty looks, the dogs and cats who've mastered the art of lounging, and the chickens, of course, who might just share a worm or two with you if you're lucky.

So, what do you say? Are you ready for an adventure? Are you prepared to be charmed by not just me, but all of Tomah Retreat's delightful inhabitants and the magical atmosphere of the Blue Mountains?

I promise, it'll be a visit filled with laughter, warmth, and maybe a little bit of mischief. After all, what's a visit without a bit of fun?

Looking forward to smooching you (with consent, of course), Flora the Pig 🐷

February 2024
Hello there, Flora's fans!

Flora here, and I'm oinking my way into the world of blogging – can you believe it? Well, folks, I turn a grand 15 on February 4th, and what better way to celebrate than to share my piggy tales with all of you!

Did I tell you it's apple picking season up here? No? It is! Wheeeeee. Lovely, crunchy, green, red, apples. Have you ever had a fresh apple before? It's like nothing on earth. Come up and try them (I'll tell you my favourite spots!)

Now, you might be wondering, "Why on earth would a pig want to start a blog?" Let me tell you, dear readers, being a pig in the Blue Mountains next to the Botanical Gardens on Mount Tomah is no small feat. It's a life of mud baths, walnut feasts, and the occasional chestnut frenzy – truly, a pig's paradise!

Firstly, let me tell you about the fantastic perks of living here. The weather – oh, it's just right. Not too hot, not too cold – just perfect for a piggy like me. Lots of beautiful mist in the mornings, I can barely find the labyrinth!  And let's not forget my very own mud bath in the garden. It's like having a spa day every day! If you're into relaxation, you've got to try it.

Speaking of the garden, it's a pig's dream come true. I get to greet all the new guests with a friendly wag of my tail and regale them with tales of my adventures. I've got a prime spot to observe the beauty of the mountains from my house, and let me tell you, it's a sight to behold.

Now, about those walnuts – oh, they're like little pieces of heaven. Walnut season is my absolute favorite time of the year. I'll happily trade my mud bath for a walnut feast any day. And chestnuts? Don't even get me started! I go absolutely mad for them. Crunchy, delicious chestnuts – a pig's guilty pleasure. They'll all be here in 1, 2 , 3 (excuse me, while I count on my trotters) months. 'April', my mum tells me. Oooh, I can't wait. And guess what? The neighbours sell them too.

You see, my mission with this blog is to spread the word about the wonders of the Blue Mountains and, of course, Tomah Retreat. It's not just a place; it's an experience. The lush green acres, the friendly mini horses, the clucking chickens – it's a piggy paradise, and I want to share it with the world.

Now, I must confess, my fellow swine enthusiasts, that sleeping is a top priority for me. In my advanced age of 15, I've earned the right to enjoy some beauty sleep. But fear not, I'll make sure to wake up for the important stuff – like greeting guests and, of course, enjoying some cake on my birthday.

So, if you're looking for a unique retreat surrounded by nature's wonders, consider coming to Tomah Retreat. Who knows, you might catch me in the garden, ready to share a tale or two – and maybe even a piece of birthday cake. Just remember, though, they say something about pigs and sharing. Wink, wink.

Until next time, keep it piggylicious!

Snorts and oinks,

Flora 🐷
