Congratulations to my beautiful Mummy who is having her incredible garden photographed for Highlife magazine. I’m so very proud of you Mum and I hope that you can put the stress aside and enjoy today.

True That.

In other news, The Garden is still producing blooms, even in Old Testament Style Conditions and with the care of a very lazy brown thumb.

Not much of note in the last few days so I thought I would share some miscellaneous images of my day to day…

These beautiful pink spray roses are making up for the fact that my Mum’s incredible roses are too far away!

Country Style

Having grown up on rural cattle properties in both Queensland and New South Wales, I have a definite soft spot for beautiful country homesteads.

These photographs are all inspiring examples of the great Australian homestead. -C x
