Spring has sprung well almost


The days are warming up and the garden centres are brimming with brightly coloured flowers and more vegetable seedlings than you can poke a stick at (and according to my husband I’ve bought half of them).

Spring must be on it’s way.

And with spring comes another edition of Seniors Today Brisbane.

Spring is apparently a good time to put down a brew according our beer columnist Bob Anthony (mind you I’ve known Bob long enough to know that he thinks any time is a good time for a little brewing).

Our own travelling Seniorita Kylie Mitchell-Smith has been out and about in Melbourne and checking out a Melbournian favourite now here in Brisbane while Erle Levey is still dreaming of Germany.

I’ve dragged myself away from the plants long enough to catch up with Laidley Spring Fest, the people behind the Food and Wine Festival coming back to Brisbane and an amazing lady called Valerie who had quite the tale to tell. And then there is my interview with the one and only Agro.

In the three months since our last issue, we’ve said goodbye to my partner in crime Louisa from advertising who has gone off to grey nomad around Australia and welcomed a new team member – Michelle Gibson who steps in to the advertising role.

Michelle and I hope you enjoy this issue and have a great spring.
