The birds & the bees…

and the butterflies & flowers.

Dave and I have been taking a few day trips over the holidays and everywhere we go seems to be bursting with colour. There are butterflies everywhere, wild flowers, birds enjoying the bounty of wild fruit and busy little bees collecting pollen and making it all possible.

We’ve taken walks along the Yarra River at Warrandyte, through the Mt Dandenong Ranges at Olinda and one of my favourite places, Lavandula, the Swiss Italian lavender farm near Daylesford. Daylesford is another of my favourite places. We spent Easter there last year in an adorable little cottage and we still talk about it all the time. I think there is something special in the air around those parts.  It’s the perfect place for romance, lovely walks and amazing food, and it doesn’t get much better than that for me!

Love waffles and other short stories

Here are just a few bits and pieces from the last few months that I quite liked. Especially the waffles made by Dave with our homemade strawberry sauce and photos of pooches Angus and Tinkerbell.

Spring and new beginnings

One of the things I love about living with my man, and I never thought I’d say this, is that he came with added extras. Much-loved pooches, Angus and Tinkerbell. How nice to have 3 happy faces to greet you when you come home and what a great excuse for early evening strolls to check out the new neighbourhood and take the camera out for a spin. Here are a few shots from tonight’s walk.
