Friends at Floriade
Hello and Happy November. We have been away and seeing more of our great country. From camping to staying with family. To holiday rentals and motels. We’ve experienced the lot.
From 80th birthday’s in Geelong, to cruising the Sydney Harbour to weddings on the beach at gorgeous Mollymook. What a frantic paced driving experience for two and a half weeks with three kids in the backseat surrounded by stuffed toys and pillows. It was all BRILLIANT!
I haven’t had time to process it all in my head but thought I needed to share just one little piece with you. Floriade in Canberra is once a year. They create a park of gorgeous flowers. We were there on the last weekend of it only to learn the bulbs are all torn out of the ground the week after the show and the park ceases to be full of vibrant displays until next spring.
Thanks Amie for showing us around.

I have been going through my old photos and moving them to a new drive. I do feel slightly uncomfortable not having print-outs or negatives. I am guessing I am not alone in this feeling. Of course people take so many more photos these days and it would take a room to store mine all printed out by the end of my career… Maybe sooner? But they are my legacy! A visual diary of a life lived! Really interesting for others to study in a 100 years time. My descendants maybe?
Anyhow, I came across this one. I actually sold a version some years back to be used in a brochure! I love it. The girls are tweens now. Time just flies! But it is also relevant to our lives now as we currently pack to travel for a few weeks. Unlike so many other families we know we will be staying in Australia. Probably spending twice as much by doing this but we have some family commitments along the way!
Looking forward to leaving this wet-windy State I’m sorry to say. It hasn’t been an easy winter for the outdoor pursuits with a family in-tow here in Tasmania!
I will be in touch!
Enjoy your October!
