The weather has been lovely and springlike - on Sunday 11yo and I went out to visit a friend....

Isn't the view from her house amazing? (photo below) A silly goose is nesting right beside the road - its so narrow its barely wide enough to walk, but she has chosen that as her nesting site. A road on one side and drop down into the harbour on the other. Maybe she feels safe from predators like dogs and possums.
|Not a great outfit photo but the view is amazing (skirt, top and cardi all thrifted) necklace gift, leggings and shoes both retail. Road sign warning drivers of the silly goose|
Yesterday 11yo and I did a bit of a shop-a-thon in town and took the cat to the vet to get his teeth cleaned (all good did not need anaesthetic which is better for him and for my wallet). I wore the top that Indigo Violet gave me, as a dress with thick opaque tights which I found in the supermarket no less. An amazing shade of burnt orange. There was a lovely sunset last night - shepherds delight and everything.

While shopping for a black pair of high top canvas boots, with black soles which look like Converse but are a heck of a lot cheaper I spotted these cute kungfu style slipper/flat shoes with "ka-pow" embroidery. I just could not say no to them - they matched my tights perfectly.
Today we went to the Botanic gardens on the Quest for Ducklings. Since I saw a mother duck and her brood crossing the highway near the stadium last week I have been on the lookout for some cute bundles of down so I can take some photos. Alas, our quest was unsuccessful. However, we did find the worlds largest cone. Now from a distance it looked like a beehive, or even a large partially eaten Easter Egg, but as the Botanic Gardens does not have bee hives nor is it Easter, we were compelled to go and check it out:

I am going to close off up with a close up - of a beautiful peony in the Botanic Garden:
