Autumn at the Cedars

Coupling
Home of Hans and Sally Heysen
Outside Cedars studio
Autumn Hydrangea

Yesterdays visit to the Heysen family home and Han's and Nora's studios. Beautiful old home almost untouched, not lived in since Han's died in 68, making the past seem almost within reach. Cupboards still full of old clothes, even Sally's 1904 wedding dress remains. A lovely misty drive home through the hills, yellow wild flowers on the road side. Hello Autumn, I now see you are here.

Oh beautiful! I love the interwoven letters. I will have to put visiting the Heysen home on my list. I love the sound of everything being still in place - what a treasure!

This makes me homesick for Adelaide. A friend and I used to bushwalk every Sunday morning and we plodded miles of the Heysen Trail.

Lovely photographs,
