Just back from a most gorgeous day.
A friend picked me up in her convertible and we escaped the haze from the back burning that is taking place across Sydney.
The air was crisp and sweet and clear.
A house among the trees. And birds.
Inside for a fabulous feast of pumpkin soup, mushroom strudel and salad. And then dessert! Oh, dessert. Choices. If only I had room for more than two. I’ll start with Persian orange almond cake. The sticky date with double serve of butterscotch sauce.
A quick sing through of happy birthday to me, off to watch the hosts feeding the birds, while admiring the bush, especially the mountain devil, flowering at different stages.
Back to the haze from back burning which you can see, sitting like a brown smudge low on the horizon.
