Hello , hope this finds everyone well and enjoying all that the season holds in your part of the world. It is mid Winter here and last weeks weather was magical with cold, frosty nights and mornings followed by crisp sunny days. It was on one of those days that John suggested a drive to Moores Hill Vineyard for a spot of wine tasting and lunch.
The vineyard offers Wine Flights (a new one for us) where you taste four different wines . We shared and tasted two sparkling and two whites , interestingly we both preferred the sparkling. We also shared a tasting board of local cheeses , meats and pickles with a small vegie board for me on the side.
John deciding where to start and yes they were as good as they looked.
As it was a little chilly I donned my floral sprigged Elliott wool cape and black wool Jude pants , a cream wool hat, cream Hispanitas boots, black gloves and sunnies.
Last Sunday we joined other MG T series owners for a drive in the countryside , a coffee stop at Deloraine along the way and lunch at the Mole Creek Hotel. Our car is the dark green one , a 1953 MGTD, now classed as vintage ( I also was born in 1953 that makes me vintage too I guess).
This was my outfit for Sunday , topped with my teddy bear coat for extra warmth. I actually wore this yesterday when these were taken in the bare Winter garden.I had been on the look out for cream wool pants for ages and came across this Moyuru pair at Allstyle recently and knew they had to be mine . They pair perfectly with the cream Moyuru jacket from a few Winters ago , a black knit , cream Hispanitas boots (last year) and a black and cream beret, black gloves and Anne et Valentine sunnies.
A quiet time in my garden on the flowering front but the hellebores are just starting to come into bloom and will be followed by the camellias and early bulbs. I started pruning my many roses last Saturday and had planned to continue this week but rain has thwarted my plans for the time being.
Joining Gail at This is Mutton for Wow on Wednesday and Nancy for Fancy Friday.
