It has been a pleasant weekend here.
So I cut some sandwiches and brought them up to the top of the yard with cans of Coke, and we ate while watching the budgies and finches dancing around in the sun on their perches.
I made sure both cats were securely inside the house, and then let the chooks out to do the "free range" thing on the newly mown lawn. But they were more interested in pecking crumbs of bread from Ken's hand.
Today, the annual Wattle Festival was held at Hurstbridge (about 20 minutes drive from our place) and so we set off just after midday in bright sunshine again. Another beautiful day weatherwise - could not have been better for this local festival. The animal nursery is always popular with little kids, and I can't resist photographing them with the animals.
The vintage steam train is a major event in the festival every year, and due to our previous involvement with Steamrail a few years ago, when we arrived on the platform to see the train, the volunteer officers pounced on us to hop aboard for a free ride!
A yard full of magnficent vintage cars.
And another favourite ride every year is the Cobb & Co. coaches.
There was also a small quilt show, and I took heaps of photos, but you will have to go to one of my other blogs here to see them if you are interested.
