Head in the Clouds
I've mentioned that I've been helping in my daughters art classes for the last....many weeks! I've had an absolute ball and truly that has been thanks enough. However, the Primary art teacher likes to thank her parent helpers in very fine style. This morning she took me out for morning tea to Cloud Hill Nursery. Oh what a beautiful place it is!
Picture this if you will (you Melbournian's will be able to picture this very well!) ~ a perfectly beautiful Spring day with brilliant sunshine, blue skies and just one or two puffs of cloud. The drive to Cloud Hill, in the Dandenong Ranges is a beautiful drive through natural forest and pretty flowering camellias and rhododendrons. The restaurant at Cloud Hill overlooks stunning gardens and out over to hills in the distance. We didn't end up walking around the gardens, because we were too busy chatting!
And what did we eat? A piece of chocolate torte each, mine with a cup of tea served in a single serve cast iron tea pot.
How do you top off the perfect spring day? You dash home to hang out some washing which will actually dry outside and then you head off and have lunch with a couple of friends.
What could be better?
