Spring has Sprung

One of the best things about living at the bottom of the planet here in Australia, is certainly the climate.  We are a millions miles away from care, but Spring has sprung and it is still Winter Down Under. That is certainly something to be thankful for. We are through the worst of it and yesterday it was shorts and t shirt weather.  My garden is full of beautiful self sown freesias and the fragrance is truly uplifting.  

We did this yesterday and after a hell week with an unwell child, it was such a pleasure to be out amongst it again.

I hope to bring you all the details of yet another beautiful walk on Sydney's Northern Beaches later.  This one involves great biking facilities as well.  In the meantime, I have added a button at the top of my sidebar with lots of great ideas on where to eat, play and shop in my corner of  Australia on the beaches.  With Spring coming on, you may want to check it out.

The Avalon Spring fete will also be on on Sunday 8 September at the local public school on Old Barrenjoey Road.  As one of the largest primary schools in NSW, that's a great one for the diary.  A good fun day out for kids and adults too, if you fancy making the trip.

In other news, I am giving away a cocktail maker set here for Desire Empire Newsletter subscribers in Australia.  It will be drawn tomorrow and hopefully to the winner by Fathers' Day.

Have a great week Beach Dwellers.

  1. I had a great day out in the sun yesterday. So nice to feel the warmth back in the sunshine and the days are certainly getting longer. We've certainly had the best of winters xx

  2. Love the colours of those flowers Carolyn they are really beautiful but the star for me was the "vase" love it heaps-love dee x

  3. I love the freshness of spring. We are in the last heat of summer.

  4. Good morning, isn't it gorgeous? I did a spontaneous post this morning after taking some photos yesterday. I do envy you these fresias, one of my fave scents.

  5. So glad your Spring is on the way. We are waiting for Fall and I can hardly wait - to hot for me.
    I loved Austria - traveled there for business many years ago. Went to Sidney and Melbourne and then off to New Zealand
    Have a great week.

  6. ohhhh....those freesias are so pretty! a breath of fresh air :)

  7. It was so interesting me to be married during the springtime in Australia at a winery in the Hunter October! I was so used to October marking fall in America. But I wouldn't have traded it for the world. It was a beautiful wedding during a gorgeous time in a wonderful country.

  8. Oh my favorite season, can't wait. It is so hot this summer, I am ready for it to end. Thanks tons for linking to Inspire Me. Hugs, Marty
