Cloudscapes from the bus
Mothers Day dessert for four family mothers
My sister(in-law’s) porch garden
Lunch with an old friend: pomegranate seeds floating in champagne
Sydney water building: Parramatta
Melbourne: the Yarra River
Melbourne: China Town
Melbourne: Queen Victoria Markets
The best wordless tour ever! Love the market snapshots, particularly the stamp mural. And the poached pears. And the champagne lunch 🙂
It was a very rich beginning to a great holiday – although it’s very nice to be snuggling in at home. It was especially wonderful to spend Mother’s Day with three other family mothers, and one third generation young woman. It would’ve been even nicer if my daughter(s) could’ve been there. I failed to revisit the markets: although my second staying place was just over the road, I was usually elsewhere when they were open. I discovered that one of J’s ancestors is actually buried under the markets – it was once a cemetery, and they moved headstones but not bodies.

Ooh Meg I love this post, and the teardrop raindrop and the street stamp and the pomegranate fizz and the pears and the crown of thorns and most of all the heart in the sky ❤
I thought you’d like the heart in the sky. A thoroughly auspicious start to my two weeks away. Fizz and pears both evoke lovely time with women.
Lovely snippets and snaps and not a drop of rain in sight! I loved the Queen Victoria markets – I had never seen fruit and veg so large before!
There have been seven spots of rain. Melbourne’s giving Sydney a run for its money – I’m loving it.

Superb photos, and I’m really amazed at the cloud shots for a bus. Great!

Just as I thought! Having a terrible time. 🙂 🙂 Good to see you, however briefly, sweetheart. When are you home? Squeeze a hug or two in the luggage.
Goodness, you and the camera have been super busy, Meg! Looks like a great time was had….
Top photos again mate. Good work.
