So on this hot day, with the breeze blowing lots of seeds in the air from the paddock down below we sat with a chilled glass of lemon & iced water and talked and watched all the cows go by. I'm on diet at the moment so we had a few little wafer thin biscuits, I know, how boring! but with the heat all I really wanted a cold drink.
I love these little ceramic green roses, I use them as tablecloth weights as well, and they always look so pretty on the table. I bought these from Barbara's Store House in Bowral, I will take you on tour to this fantastic home wares store very soon. They have the most wonderful things and they have such a huge following, every woman who visits our town makes a trip straight to their store, you can see many a husband standing at the front doors for hours waiting for their wives to return. I bought all the little birdcages from them for the Debutante Ball and many other things.
It is such a peaceful place and there is something about cows that I love, always have and everyone that comes to visit my parents home relax instantly. Today I found the shedded skin of a brown snake just near the footpath, oh my did I jump, they are very dangerous snakes as well. You should have seen me waving my arms in the air and making lots of noise to keep them away. I do hope I never see them, I do worry especially for Mum when she is in the garden with her washing. But, we are in the country and they start to come out at this time of the year. .
The green urn with the roses and the French green toile cushions on the woven chairs were a gift to Mum a few years ago. I just love a green tablesetting in the garden.
With so many grandchildren my mother has always had a collection of little chairs, each living room through the house caters for the little ones as well. I pick them up quite often at garage sales and drop them off to Mum's house as I just don't have the room anymore in mine.
