My sister Olive has just returned to Paris. Sad to say goodbye to her after such a fun summer but I’m sure despite the cold it’s lovely to be back in the city she now calls home.

While she was here we did a fun little shoot with photography by Kurt Davies with flowers by me.

Carolyn Young is an Australian artist whose work Grassy Woodlands is currently being featured on a Collingwood billboard as part of an art initiative by the Yarra Council. Young is interested in the seasonality of these disappearing ecosystems and encourages her viewers to observe and respect the nature that exists all over. I’d like to have a wall of this in my home.

We have just returned from a magical few days down at Sambo’s farm.

The New Years Eve dinner tables were painstakingly built (between glasses of spritz) by the boys and decorated with quince branches by Angele, Olive, Jane and me. Dinner at sunset was followed by performances in the theatre and lots of dancing.

The rest of our days were filled with trips to the waterfall and the gorge to cool ourselves in the summer heat with 30 of us comically spread across two utes to travel, watching movies under the stars with everyone piled on mattresses in front of the projector, and eating an unimaginable amount of food prepared with so little fuss by Que and her team of mates.

To old friends and new, and most importantly Sam, Kali and Rupert, thank you for such a great escape.
