The sun was streaming in straight into my eyes so I needed to pull the blind..
so I will be quick as I have so missed the sunshine on winter's days
I want to soak in the vit D
It was magic to drive through the lush country rolling hills on Thursday morning
The views were superb ..
green hills & fields dotted with animals and in many cases lush patches of jonquils & daffodils
This first picture is nearing Daylesford from Newstead...
up a modest incline before joining the Castlemaine/ Daylesford Road.
The Willow Tree
Always a striking tree in spring as it is here, just budding in green
summer as it weeps over
autumn as it sheds it's golden leaves
as it stands baring all.
Willows featured in my life right from the beginning..
I lived on a farm for 9 months where a bank of willow trees sat along a channel bank...
Then moved to a federation house in town
where a huge willow tree shaded us in the summer....
The house had been named
a Brass or I think copper plaque sat above the entrance to the front verandah.
The open road...
with rain drops on the windscreen
a promise of what is around that bend in the road...
Daylesford & then onto Ballan
to Rose Mill quilt shop..
then back to Daylesford to take in the other style of life...
