Firstly the beautiful nest, a work of art in its own rightwith a beautiful wooden egg sitting perfectly in it.
Christmas Eve Pia and I cooked up a storm.....we love this time together as it is rare, and relish the results, especially the tasting which was sensational....sweet treats, cheeses, breads, pate, ham with the most divine glaze, and much more. The day was shared with friends and family alike, and of course we ate and drank a little too much, then who didn't?
Boxing day was spent with good friend Paul and his family at Conningham, once again divine tastings and wonderful company.
After a day or so resting and recouperating we took off up to Brady's lake to visit family and of course Pia took along her trusty camera and captured images of the most beautiful lupins amass along the roadside, and of course there were the wonderful "character" shacks....it was a glorious day.
Lawrie has spent the day carving more of his chess pieces from the many Hebel blocks we still have; he is quite amazing with his vision and ability to carve as he sees in his minds eye. These will sit upon a VERY large chess board in the garden.
I will post more images in the coming days, as there are far too many not to share with you.
