scenes : in a heatwave

/ I go on about socks in winter but come summer I’m vigilant about hats. This lovely one arrived in the mail from Acorn Kids.

/ the Christmas Bush has bloomed red; the festive season is officially here.

/ fallen gum branches beside the shed.

/ this little one loves the water.

/ early morning on the sand.

/ brush this curry plant with your skirt and you’ll smell the heady scent for the rest of the day.

/ the lightest muslin dress for hot summer days.

/ California poppies. They make me happy.

We’re escaping the heat at my parents’ house today. Thank goodness for air-conditioning. There’s a hot gusty wind blowing outside and the temp is hitting 40degree. Summer in Australia can be harsh.

and also…

I’ve been eyeing off these sustainable basics for a year now. International shipping for one week only.
Twenty years! Really?
Are you PNDA aware?
Stay connected (with each other) this Christmas.
wearing this everyday (and a hat, of course)
I’m all for waiting.
mythological motherhood – yes!
I really like this website

Stay cool, friends.

    Oh my goodness – it's so odd to read of heat waves when we're in the grip of winter's icy-cold wind and rain here in Ireland! I wouldn't mind a little bit of sun right now!

    hem, it's not marigold you took a picture of but California poppies, great flowers that nothing can kill, not even frost
