Hello , I hope everyone had a pleasant Easter. We were treated with magical weather over Easter, clear , sunny days with temperatures in the mid 20’s C.
Ours was a quiet but productive Easter with many hours spent in the garden. A small tree was removed , along with the overgrown wisteria and jasmine that was threatening to taking over the camellias.
There is still more work to be done but it is looking so much better.
As well as gardening we were able to watch via a live stream our son Callum run at Stawell in Victoria. Callum ran well and made two semi-finals, proud mother here.
As a reward for our hard work John and I took a drive to the country to check out the Autumn colours.
Continuing my theme of wearing unworn Summer items my outfit was Maude Dainty black silk palazzo pants, white ruffle Mela Purdie shirt topped with a coral linen coat. I also added my Sobral bangles , cream Fendi sunnies and bronze Clergerie wedges that I really should wear more often.
Time to don my Easter bonnet , a favourite of mine made by Tasmanian milliner Susan McArthur. Last seen on the blog when my hair was longer and blonder a few Summers ago.
Looking at this photo I did like the longer , lighter hair , maybe I will go there again in time.
This rather clever hat is as good from the back as the front with all its clever details.
While taking our photos we discovered this rather ornate ironwork gate that once was an entrance to Quamby , once a working farm , now a golf course and event centre. Such a shame it is covered with blackberries .
A quiet time in the garden at present with a few roses , sasanqua camellias and this white dahlia.
I will finish this post with some lovely family news , our little Harry is to become a big brother late in September. Congratulations Zac, Sarah and Harry.
