A Late Winter Walk Through the Bush


This morning, while I was running along the bush tracks close to home, I noticed a number of colourful flowers dotted here and there amongst the green leaves. 

This afternoon, Sophie and I returned with our cameras (and Nora the puppy) to take some photos.

I don't know all the names of the flowers, but banksias are easy to identify...




There are a few different wattles blooming at the moment. The flowers on this one are arranged in spikes...





An amble along the tracks where we usually run...







The day began with a heavy frost but it warmed up and the sun appeared about midday. 




We had a silly few minutes at the end of our walk, taking photos of ourselves. I propped my camera on top of a tall tree stump and clicked away... 



I finally got a photo of my whole face...





We then wandered down the road and in a few moments we were back home.

The Elvis Spring Fashion Shoot Photos


The other morning Sophie said, "I wish we could make another fashion shoot video," and I replied, "Why don't you ask the other girls if they'll help you." So she did.

"It'll be fun," said Imogen.

"I'll be a model," said Gemma-Rose.

"Let's get some outfits organised," said Charlotte.

"It'll be a spring fashion shoot," said Sophie.

Soon the kitchen chairs were covered in skirts and dresses and shoes and hair flowers and jewellery ... and a cat! Do you think she was hoping to walk down the catwalk too?





Gemma-Rose put on her first outfit. Charlotte arranged her hair.



She slipped her feet into her sparkly silver shoes.



Imogen turned on the camera. !... 2... 3... action!

A pink skirt and flowered shawl (didn't that feature in the last fashion shoot?), a rainbow loom bracelet...



A pale pink princess skirt embroidered with flowers, and a needlecord jacket with pockets...



A big smile...


Big old-fashioned roses, a tasselled shawl and pearl earrings...



A black and white skirt, with t-shirt and tights...



"Relax!" ordered Imogen from behind the camera.

"Sway like this," said Gemma-Rose to Sophie...



Pretty in blue and white...


A Tangled t-shirt and denim skirt with frills...



Braids and hair flowers...




And a special guest modelling a pink spring scarf. (Nora will do anything as long as she gets some doggy treats!)



The Elvis spring fashion shoot came to an end. It was time for some editing. 

Would you like to see the finished video? It's a lot of fun, much better than these photos. There's even some bloppers! Sophie posted the link on her blog...

We hope you enjoy it!
