Today, September 1, the first day of Spring, and Father's Day in Australia...
Mr C and I , like all modern parents, were up early for him to receive Father's Day wishes via phone calls from the other side of the globe -
one from Canada, one from Ireland where our Sydneysider son is currently travelling...
Later we joined our second son, the Rocket Scientist, lovely daughter-in-law and her family, for brunch at the Chow House - Mr C resplendent in his new shirt...
Some-one who rarely eats meat was seen chowing down the bacon...hmmm
These light fittings looked interesting..reminded me of some woven indigenous sculptures I have seen recently..
Here's to Spring:
Primavera, or Allegory of Spring, by Sandro Botticelli, c.1482 -
The Uffizi Gallery, Florence.
There are 500 identified plant species, including 190 different flowers depicted in this complex composition. (Image: Wikipedia)
And to finish, Sinding's Rustle of Spring, played by Daniel Sabbah.
With thanks to Perpetua, of Perpetually in Transit for her brilliant instructions on uploading from YouTube.
Happy Father's Day to all Australian Dads - this is your day -
Have a great week everybody!
