that every day is the best day in the year"

at the flour mill .....

 ~   Bridgewater Mill   ~
Once a thriving flour mill - now converted to an upmarket restaurant
but the wheels on this old mill keep turning
 albeit very slowly
Revolution not only speaks of mutiny, revolt and rebellion
but about "instances of revolving"
rotating, circling and twirling
and yes!  amid the circling I managed to capture this interesting
aged window in the Flour-Mill surrounds

raincoat for the Rolls .......

~   Carrick Hill Estate   ~
while visiting the gardens of Carrick Hill
I couldn't help but smile at the raincoat
billowing atop this vintage Rolls Royce
Nothing left to chance at this wedding!

chilly morning walk .......

~   Wynne Vale Dam   ~
sometimes it's worth walking on a chilly cold morning 
one minute grey and sombre and I start to wish I'd never ventured out
 the next -  sunlit with golden reflections and for a moment my heart sings

to market to market ......

~   Brunch at the Adelaide Farmer's Market   ~
A real buzzy place and loved the way stall-holders
had set up their produce and eateries amid
an eclectic mix of  tables and chairs
topped with mugs of in-season blooms
pancakes - paella - biscotti - country bacons rolls
and the most wonderful Italian coffee

reminders of yesteryear .......

  Adelaide Hills   ~
there's something lovely about old pioneer buildings
Once residences with a bustling life of their own
now derelict with only memories remaining

blue skies over golden vines .......

~   Piccadilly Valley   Adelaide Hills   ~

I had a few hours to kill and so hopped in my little
Red Renault and headed for the hills
to check out the autumnal colours
The only downside to this spontaneous adventure
was that I was driver -navigator and photographer
which as you can imagine is not the best way to travel
along winding country lanes

I hope you like the pics !!

Easter Roses .......

 ~  Newman's Nursery Rose Show   ~
wonderful old-fashion style roses
not only in form and colour but
in their delightful perfume

" a rose without perfume is
 bereft of it's sweetest charm"

pink skies and weathered boards ..........


 ~   Victor Harbor     Fleurieu Peninsula ~
this little jetty has seen better days
no longer useful for fishermen and bathers
but lovely to look at in the evening light

wishing my friends out in blog-land  a wonderful Easter season
 filled with love- joy and chocolate!

Ode To Autumn ........

~ Bridgewater  Adelaide Hills   ~
"season of mists and mellow fruitfulness
close bosom - friend of the maturing sun"
                                                                                            John Keats  1821
a gathering of autumnal colours
 nestled in amid gnarled tree trunks
