What have I been up to this week and we have a winner!

It's been a very springy week - beautiful one day, the pits the next!

Luckily we chose a great day to go by rivercat to the city.
As I've said in a previous post the Opera House is one on my favorite places, and what a splendid view as the cat floats under the harbour bridge towards circular quay.

I went with K, K and H to see a couple of exhibitions - one, Flora - an exhibition of botanical art (where a friend was showing for the first time) was in the Palm House in the Royal Botanic Gardens.

This is the aptly named Spring Walk in the gardens -

At the weekend we visited our daughter and went down the coast to Kiama - which is known for it's blow hole.

Due to the pitsy weather and ferocious seas the blowhole was really blowing!
Despite that there were still some very brave surfers out there!

On another lovely spring day I went on one of my favorite little local walks.

The bush was full of blossoms - boronia -

and peas -
The bees were buzzing the birds were tweeting!

This is a tiny flower called a phebalium -

There were new fern shoots as well.

One evening my son took me to the jazz club where Pete Mcdonald was launching his new CD.
What a great evening of funky, mellow, jazz.

Legend Sandy Evans played sax!

Oh, and I went to the Sydney bead and gem show - but I'll tell you about that another time!

And before I go I'd like to announce that this week's winner is Beryl!!
Yay! for Beryl!

Remember to leave a comment to have a chance of winning a surprise!
