Autumn at the Cedars

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.

Just lately

Little dress, time to put away for another child to play in another day.
Out comes the wool basket.
Dear I's autumn verses to learn and sing.
It's carnival time.
lemon cake with cream cheese icing - happy Sundays and plentiful cups of tea.

Hello there!

Still here! Although just a little quiet of late but I have plans to change that. Take care and have a lovely weekend. We are off to Womadelaide tomorrow and will certainly be taking my camera along.
