I’ve spent the last two days with my Californian friends and it has been so much fun showing them around Melbourne. I am also really excited about our trip down to the Great Ocean Road over the next few days as well.

I’m not sure what I will do with the blog while I’m away, but I will try and get a couple of updates done.

The next theme, first Thursday in July is Wild, your interpretation.

Running late again. I have some friend from the states in Melbourne at the moment and I spent quite a bit of time with them yesterday. Still, I’m sure you are used to me running late these days.

I’m happy to say the advice I was given about going on a weekday and early proved to be true. While there were still many people, it wasn’t so crowded and it was much better to see. We did have to wait at some paintings to see them, but it wasn’t long, and was expected really, as with any exhibition.

From the start I just want to say that I am not a big one for reality television shows, but there are a couple that I find good and will watch. Though there are particulars reasons that I like them. There are two shows that I have found to really inspire me and get me thinking.

Last weekend I showed you some photos of the grounds at Alowyn Gardens and I said I would show you some of the flowers. I forgot until Julie mentioned it, so thought I should do some. I haven’t done many, if I’m honest a lot of the flowers were past it, and you could tell winter was starting to set in. I do love winter, but it isn’t a good time for flower macro photography.
