Sky Watch Friday

This is another photo from along the Bridle Trail - this time at Easter after a few days of light rain. It's remarkable how quickly it greens up again. It was simply beautiful up there but it seems that half of Sydney was out there camping.

I love the colour purple - in nature, my home and my wardrobe. There is just something about it that I'm drawn to.

The tibouchina next to our front door. It's just starting to
flower here in the autumn and it is glorious.

A must have for every girl - purple nail varnish (OPI of course)!

Pretty purple patchwork fabrics :-)

Sky Watch Friday

I took this shot on the way home from the local shops. We saw this great cloud formation and I slowed down while my daughter took the snap out of her window.

My Punky Fairy

Today is Shelby's last Easter parade. She is in Year 6 and going to High School next year. The theme this year is "Wings and Masks" and she was determined to borrow my wings, even though she is always telling me that she is NOT a girly girl, she's a tomboy.

We had everything for the costume but a top and I admit that I had to bully her into this top. She thought that it was too pretty and bright but I was adamant that it would be perfect. When we got home from the shopping trip and she tried it all on, even she had to admit that mum was right :-)

My husband must think he lives in a nuthouse sometimes. I bought the wings on our last camping / touring holiday and he was hassling me about why I needed them. He really wasn't happy when he ended up with fairy glitter all over his bag...LOL. I have quite a few wands too. And Shelby already had the black tutu.

It was very busy this morning doing Shelby's face up until she was happy with it. It turned out really well. I think that she looks absolutely gorgeous and she is happy that there is a punk look to her outfit. Like her mum, she's a girl who likes to look a little different :-)

I had to drop her off at school as she had most of her costume on, the wand poking out of her school bag that was on her back, wings in one hand and a basket of goodies for the market stall in the other.

My little girl is growing up.

Welcome to Skywatch Friday. For more skies around the world, visit here.

This is another shot from the Bridle Trail on the way to Hill End. I just love the wispy clouds against the blus sky and the old fence rambling along.

Sky Watch Friday

Welcome to Skywatch Friday. Visit here for more beautiful skies around the world.

This shot is from out near Hill End in New South Wales, off the Bridle Trail. It's really dry out there and they desperately need some rain - the river is almost non-existent in places. It's still beautiful though.
