Melbourne garden

I had a sunny few hours to sit out in the garden in Melbourne. Jimmy the dog plied me with balls while I sat and sketched and then painted the Pride of Madeira and clivia flowers.
Poor Jimmy I think I ended up with 6 balls, I did eventually throw them for him.
We had a lovely few days, enjoyed my birthday breakfast and was home for more champagne at night. I feel relaxed and ready to get on with a bit more of my life.
There is nothing like being in a new enviroment for a few days to enthuse one again.
