Autumn Outings – Barbie’s Last Crush

Somedays the universe throws something a little strange your way, years ago I would have laughed it off as something silly and said pass, these days I find we often have the most fun at these ‘silly’ opportunities…so when Moth and I were invited to watch a Pink ‘Barbie’ car get crushed by a Centurion…

Regular Random – Last of the Hydrangeas

On a recent trip looking for awesome Autumn colour I came across this almost spent Hydrangea bush, refusing to give up on the last fragments of blooms, almost devoid of colour. I spent at least five minutes and took way too many photos of this stunning plant, for it truly was with it’s subtle blues,…
