A visit to the small town of Perth for lunch at the very imaginately named restaurant ,The Phoenix and The Fox, which is housed in an old church. After an extremely good lunch we made our way to the nearby
South Esk River to take some photos.
Overlooking the river is Stone House, a magnificent Georgian house dating back to 1825. The house
is now 5 star accomodation,for a mere $1800.00 a night you can have the whole house to yourself.
I will have to settle for peering over the front stone wall and admiring both the house and the stunning gardens with their late summer blooms.
As a gardener I couldn’t resist a closeup of the different dahlias with the white agapanthus.
Wearing a watermelon coloured peplum jacket ,worn over a black top dotted with buttons and
other decorative bits and my wide leg linen black and white pants.I have had these pants made
by Nicola Waite for several summers now and love them even though ,as is very evident, they
crease very badly.That to me is the trade off for the comfort factor of linen in hot weather.
This jacket made in New Zealand by OBI looks as good from the back as from the front.I once would have
worried about this view but not any more, another joy of becoming older,caring less about such things.
I know another view of the same jacket, simply buttoned up this time. This is included to keep my
ever(or mostly) patient husband and photographer happy,it was his favourite.
I had to show the shoes, a long time favourite,now sadly only worn when I am not walking any distance,
they are Spanish and suede,I love their peep toe and sling backs.I will have to practice wearing a heel more.
