Hello Spring!

Yesterday was officially the first day of spring here in Australia, and the shift in the weather this weekend has been so dramatic, it’s almost like mother nature flicked a switch. After months of cold, grey, rainy weather, the last couple of days have been warm and sunny and glorious! This morning we headed out for a late brunch before a walk around Lake Weeroona with Miss Daisy Dog. The trees were filled with spring blossoms, the lake was dotted with ducks and the grass was covered in families celebrating Father’s Day. We ate hot jam doughnuts, gleefully wiggled our toes in the sunshine and bathed our skin in the warmth. It was exactly what we needed.

We hope you’ve all had the peachiest, happiest, loveliest weekend. Happy Father’s Day to all the papas out there, with extra love to our own dads, who are back home in QLD! We love and miss you both so much.

    Its been much the same here in Bunbury, Western Australia. It was our anniversary today so we took a trip to the Perth Zoo, making the most of the perfect weather.

    On a side note, how good are the jam donuts from the van?! My Dad lives in Bendigo and everytime we went to visit we’d stop to visit the donut man and get half a dozen to share between my brother, sister and I on the way back home to Wodonga.

    Your pictures are amazing. It’s funny that you’re enjoyed the Spring coming and here in America we’re mostly can’t wait for the fall to come 🙂 xxxx

    This time of year is so magical because it’s when all of the world progresses into a more mild season. Spring and Fall are really metamorphosis parts of the year and it’s nice to know that while my leaves are falling down, your’s are blooming.

      Haha, brunch is our thing! We don’t go out for dinner that much but we make a point of having special brunches as often as possible! 🙂

    I love your cute blog! Just discovered you, we just moved to Bendigo too a few months ago so it is wonderful to see there is a nice little blogging community. You’ve inspired me to blog more!
    Keep up the beautiful work.

    Mmm, that breakfast looks absolutely delicious, you are making me hungry!

    I had a great first day of spring planting new fruits and veggies in my little garden, but you would never know it’s Spring in Perth as it’s been miserable all week!
    Hopefully it’ll be nicer this weekend!
