our magnolia is flowering at the moment - it's my new favourite tree. peter went off to sing about the jungle on the radio and i took some photos of the tree that sits just outside our bedroom window. it looks much better against a blue sky; i don't think spring is quite here yet.

this morning was like a scene out of a thomas hardy novel: dew glistening on the grass and in spiderwebs, the sun rising over the lemon trees burning off the night fog that was lingering around the tops of the trees and the very first hints of spring were in the air. i'd start getting up earlier if it looked like this every day...

with a nice weekend of absolutely no plans ahead of us, peter and caught a tram into the city to visit the national gallery. peter hates the city - who knows how he's going to get along with new york on those very brief few days we're visiting in october.

sunday morning in mt. martha - peter slept in and mun and dad went for a walk around the block. typical victorian schizophrenic weather; pouring rain and then the sun was out. we went to the mornington cemetery to see my great grandparents and my papa and it was so nice to be out of the city and in the fresh air for a while.
