Just one more, the moon through the dormant frangipani.

Today is the last day of winter, YIPPEEEEE, and "a photo a day".
I'm happy that summer isn't far away.
I've enjoyed the challenge of "a photo a day" it's a great way to look at the world around you.
Thank you Megan and everyone else who joined the wonderful photographic journey.

Yesterday mum and I ventured to Adelaide for the "Way we Wear Fair".
This was our 3rd fair and we still loved every minute of it.
I love old treasures and clothes they were made so well and the fabrics are just beautiful.
We had lots of lovely conversations with strangers reminiscing about our mothers, grandmothers and great grandmothers in respect to the displays.
Button up boots, gosh they must have had small feet!
Lace up corsets, I don't know how they managed to breathe.
The days when every woman carried a compact and discreetly powdered their nose in the powder room.
This blue self patterned dress just called my name, I tried to resist but it was useless!

I bought the wooden rabbit while on holidays in Queensland years ago.
The angel was made by Sue as a pressie years ago.
The bird house was a pressie from my bestest pals.
While on the way to a fair with the bestest pals we stopped in an antique shop and this little trike became mine.
Of course the car was already full to the brim but we managed to squeeze the bike in!
These treasures have been carted around the country side with me and always bring back special memories of time spent with special friends.

Today is my Birthday and again I have been spoilt or as my mother would say "not spoilt, just well loved!" After all I am a Leo.
Tootled out and about for coffee and lunch and a wander along the beach.
Arrived home to find the postie had delivered the most gorgeous pressie from Christina.
It's beautifully crotched and fits perfectly, Thank you.

More photos from my wonderful weekend.
Great friends, wonderful food, wine, art and gardens.
Sue's gorgeous jewelry upcycled using lots of
interesting things including vinyl records.
The rusty bed in the garden was made to
cover a septic tank.
The rusty tin looks just a patchwork quilt.

We headed up the coast yesterday. Although less than an hour away the coast line changes, rocky out crops and high cliffs.
The sand is no longer white but reddish in colour.
We played like children skimming rocks on the water and making sail boats from cuttlefish shells and feathers.
It was lovely to lay on the sand, read my book and enjoy some winter sunshine.
See who else is playing along with "a photo a day" over at Megan's.

It's freezing here today so it's good to have a well stocked wood pile.
I should live in the far north of Australia, although I have been know to wear a jumper in Darwin.
According to mother, and we all know mothers are right, I have iced water running through my veins!
Off to snuggle up by the fire.

The beautiful Golden Solandra heads skyward.
Almost able to leap tall buildings in a single day.
It grows on our boundary fence and it appears unstoppable.
Our neighbour "hacks" into on regular basis and it seems to say "Thank you" by encroaching on his house even more.

I took these 2 photos out of the car window while rushing home last night.
Life sometimes seems to pass by in a blurr just like these trees.
They'll be roasted tonight.
I'm enjoying playing along with a photo a day.

Our neighbours almond tree has looked spectacular covered in tiny white blossoms.
The petals are now beginning to drift around and lay like snow flakes on the ground.
