This week our school community was lucky enough to go on a fund raising trip to Paul Bangay's amazing garden in Denver, near Glenlyon. This circular window is typical of the garden, quirky and surprising, clever and ordered.
Did I mention beautiful? Yep, it sure was. Lots of stunning views, spaces, shapes, colours,
and then there was the pool!
This picture doesn't really do the view justice, I really could have stood there all day looking out to the horizon. Although I may have had to also slip into that cool green water. OMG.
And here are three of us, waiting for champagne... :)
It was a great morning and everyone had a ball. Lots of chatting on the bus on the way home!
Yesterday was my mum's birthday! I had heaps of fun finding presents for her,
including these cool coasters made from coiled paper.
I found them, along with so many other beautiful things, at the very incredible shop, Junk Style, in Vincent St, Daylesford. If you are a visitor to our little town then do pop up the stairs and have a look. I guarantee you will find something special.
Like this red necklace,
which Mum loved.
It's so beautiful being out in the garden lately, I just love this time of year. The bees are buzzing,
the blossom is smelling sweet, vegies are planted, chooks are healthy and giving us their gorgeous eggs. And then there are the ducks..
two of them, have been sitting on a massive pile of eggs for a few days now. I went in yesterday to discover that their mum is also getting into the act. They're a close family.
So prepare yourselves for many duck shots and much duck talk over the next few weeks. I'm all clucky (or should that be quacky?) I'm so looking forward to the new ducklings hatching!! And possibly a couple of chicks too, oh boy.
They are so peaceful and beautiful and serene, I do love them so.
One last beautiful thing, a community project, something that is uniting people in the most wonderful way. This weekend there is to be a big party to celebrate the start of a community garden here in Daylesford!! Today I made a little contribution to the celebration, some bunting to decorate this amazing new shared space. Here it is hanging on my front fence, I'm really happy with how it turned out. I must admit it was fun getting back to some sewing too.
So that's me for today lovely ones. I hope your weekend is a happy one and that you find some truly beautiful things to brighten your days. See you soon xo
