Oh happy days when the morning shows a little sunshine reflecting on the city across my straight.
The morning that starts with coastal sunshine has a chance of spreading inland into the country.
So C and I followed the river out to the country for a good breather from the work week.
We had the best mooch around exquisite little boutiques.
We tested organic lotions,
Saw the best witch’s hats resting on porches.
Found our reflections in vintage mirrors,
And gazed into crystal balls.
Saturday we went to the hockey game. (Canadian, remember ) We went to support Bryson, he’s the linesman in the Wolf Pack games. This game was so heated that at one point two Wolf Pack players and three of the visiting players were in the penalty boxes! Boys…eh? (that’s Bryson in the plain striped shirt)
Sunday was a quick trip to the market for some fresh veggies.
It may have been the wrong time to go to the market because there were millions of little children in various Halloween costumes and we guessed it may have been a special Halloween happening.
But there was this man blowing gigantic bubbles, and that was a treat for us as much as for the little guys.
Also, there were wonderful flowers for sale. Well, not flowers actually, but these amazing grass seed heads.
I also found what I think is the eucalyptus my new friend Melinda uses to get orange eco prints, and this beautiful green sweet William blossom. (but just look to the price per stem!)
I was watching my favourite show, Gardeners World, and saw Rachel de Thame, one of the presenters, show off her cut flower beds. That’s the answer! Plant a cut flower bed with all the exquisite blooms.
So, now it’s evening and I’m at home and a little late evening sun is playing on my walls and making my paintings glow.
I love it when the sun shines. Hope your weekend was sunny and lovely.
