the bush

I spent a long weekend with my family in central western NSW. It was great to get some fresh air and wander through the bush, even at this time of year when things are mostly dormant and frost bitten. The skies were a brilliant blue and the sun hinted that spring wasn't far away. It was just what I needed. Here are some of my favourite pics ...

My dad, my little boy and the dogs out for a wander
Pods shedding seeds before spring 
The little daisies I used to pick as a girl
Gum trees along the Macquarie River
I'll be back later in the week with the sewing I managed to get done while I was there too - two dresses, no less!

One of our School "houses" was Macquarie. Those pictures look too familiar - although I was North West.

Two dresses! Tease!
