Snow had been falling early last week in the only region in Queensland known for the odd snowfall.
The Cardinals decided to fly off to Stanthorpe in the Granite Belt close to the southern border of the state.
Alas, no snow could be found, but the brass monkey in the main street looked a little cold.
It was satisfyingly bleak, cold and wet, and warm coats, scarves, hats and gloves were seen. And that was just Mr Cardinal...
We enjoyed fresh seasonal produce ..
Quirky garden stuff - don't you love the funny tourist spots?
Discovered a lavender farm over the border in New South Wales:
Bought a pile of lavender goodies, jams and relish, candles and fragrance, natural soaps, chocolates .....
Can't keep a good shopaholic down!
Invigorated by this expedition, I finished the pyjamas for the Petite Garcon:
They are now winging their way across the Pacific, to our dear little grandson.
Hope he likes them!
and hope your week is going well ..
