My own swimming season extends for only one week of the year, between Christmas and New Year's, however, other's are happy to swim year round, even in August. I found these two de-frosting in the sun after a dip in the pool.
Correct me if I'm wrong, and who doesn't love being corrected, but I believe they were planted around Queensland University so their flowers would remind students of when to hit the books for the end of year exams.
These four tonnes of blue stones have been sorted into various piles according to their size and shape. No, it's not the work of a mad man, but my husband, on the cusp of a new landscaping project - stone walls at the bottom of our front stairs.
He's already made a start. It's tedious, time consuming work, and not for the faint hearted.
I had the base cushions recovered on my Eiffel Tower chairs. Basic beige with black piping for every day....
... and on the flipside, a Tommy Bahama style tropicale print for when we're feeling a little more festive.
Speaking of Eiffel Tower/spun fibreglass furniture, I happened upon the mother load recently.
About twelve pieces over two different settings, including a plant stand, two seater settee and carver chairs. A touch of marine grade white paint and they'll come up a treat. If you'd like to get your hands on some, watch this space!
Does anyone know about this building? It's on the grounds of the mental health facility at Wacol. We found it when we were looking at the hundreds of kangaroos on the Gailes Golf Course late one afternoon. It's a sandstone building with timber verandahs, right on the Brisbane River. It's fenced off and in very bad shape.
It's a stunning building, I'm not sure what the plans are. I can't imagine Campbell spending any money to restore it at the moment.Hoping everyone enjoyed their Father's Day. I ate half a lamb for lunch and spent the remainder of the day digesting, like a boa constrictor that'd swallowed a goat. It was like Christmas in September?
