If you have been in Melbourne the last few days, you may have a noticed the signs that Spring is just around the corner!

The days are getting lighter earlier….and darker later!

The temperature is getting a little higher….the car said it was 21C when we were out and about today….and the sun definitely has more warmth!

And there is the most divine scent in the air from the budding flowers….we have a few Daphne plants outside the back door and the perfume is gorgeous….love it!

It’s like literally overnight, Mother Nature flips the switch, and we are suddenly out of the worst of Winter…although I just checked the weather forecast, and it looks like the cold weather is not over…Monday is looking pretty dismal!

But days like today make me happy to be alive….the skies are blue and the sun is shining….it is Melbourne at its best!

I will leave you with some images of how we spent this beautiful Saturday…

It started with an early morning walk….still a bit chilly but lovely in the sunshine!


Saw some lavender in the glorious morning sun…


We had our shadows leading the way….


We headed down the highway for a little vintage shopping therapy….will reveal where this is in another post…

Vintage Shop

Then headed towards the coast to catch up with some friends in Mornington….


Which did involve some tea drinking in pretty china cups and saucers….


And then it was time to head back to the”big smoke”….


And the day is not over yet….we will be watching our beloved Cats take on the Hawks tonight….its almost footy final time!

What did you do today? Were you able to enjoy some fresh air and sunshine?
