Blog Hopping .....

Hello hello

How are we all today?
It's a little cold here in Adelaide - Winter at it's best! Rainy, windy, dark, cold and dreary.

For something a little different, I'm taking part in a Blog Hop today with some gorgoues and talented Aussie women.
The theme is WINTER - rather fitting really!

I'm going to share a few of my fave WINTER photos with you today.

School Holidays are the first two weeks of July here in South Australia and normally it's pouring with rain and blowing an absolute gale but three days into the holidays, my dear scrappy friend Louise, came over and we took Jessica and Emily up into the Adelaide Hills for a photo shoot. 

The sun was our but the wind was bitterly cold .....
The girls had so much fun....

We started out at an oval running around, playing hide & seek, blowing bubbles .....

I adore how the winter sun is working on these photos....
Emily is 5 and Jessica is 9. Emily is the daughter of my my best friend and these two are just like sisters ... they play like sisters, fight like sisters and do everything together.

After we left the oval, time for a nice warm coffee .... well the girls had Babychinos.....

Last stop was the Wittunga Botanical Gardens where the girls chased the ducks in the afternoon light and played chasy around the gardens and paths ....

I love these photos of Emily ... Sums her up perfectly

Winter mushrooms were just starting to poke thru the undergrowth - they were stunning

Well thats a little slice of my winter here in Adelaide.
School is back now and my house is tidy! :)

Hop on over to see the other talented ladies and read all about their winter .....
