Well you wouldn’t know it by the weather we had today (7 degrees and rainy) but we have had the most gorgeous Spring weather lately, perfect for a day amongst the flowers at Floriade.
Even amongst these magnificent blooms the rocks by the lake beckoned Jack. Sarah and I took a lovely rest under a tree while Jack threw rocks, much to the delight of the passing crowds.
And splashed in puddles.
And played in the dirt.
And a perfect Spring day wouldn’t be complete without ice-cream running down your arms and all over your face…why did I dress Sarah in white that day?
‘You can’t do sketches enough. Sketch everything and keep your curiosity fresh.’ ~ John Singer Sargent
I’m trying to make a conscious effort to always have Jack and Sarah’s sketch books with us wherever we go. It is my hope that drawing becomes a part of their life, a way of seeing the world. A way to connect and appreciate its beauty.
So when you come to Canberra, make sure you come in Spring so we can go to Floriade together.
