Down a Country Road Part One

Well we had a fab day at the zoo at Dubbo. My camera man acquitted himself well. We both got some lovely photos....but didn't bring my internety remote thingy so can't show you.....sigh* I can show you a beautiful book I bought myself...

I am now taking my tablet to take some piccies to share with you (hope you don't hate holiday pics lol!)
We dropped by a little Sunday market in Dubbo and bought some delicious marmalade and a set of chimes for my kitchen. Old spoons....very kitsch but I love them!
Se travelled down through Wellington, Molong, Orange and on to Cowra...bit of a Cooks tour because of flooding and road closures.
Today we went off to the Japanese Gardens in peaceful. Its not called the Peace Precinct for nothing......a few piccies!

Yours truly...bit windswept. It was quite a deal cooler than this old Queenslander is used to!
Loved the wisteria.

Loved the little family that greeted us as we wandered....7 children!
There are large gums which are quite sculptural in parts of the garden.
I love the lake area....the Koi rush to the bridge hoping for a treat along with the ducks.
Well I'm hoping you aren't too bored. We also popped into the Cultural centre and I couldn't stay away from the pots.....
No one does ceramics like the Japanese.
I have always loved a raw fired pot....

Oh and of course gorgeous fabric...
And yes you read it right there is a Part 2 to this day!  See you in the next episode!
Namaste and Blessings Michelle xxx
