46/52

"A portrait of my children, once a week, every week, in 2012."

Che: At his school's cultural day he celebrated "Australia" by dressing as a lifeguard. He stood still long enough for me to take his photo and then ran off into the garden.
Poet: In the garden picking flowers. She loved walking off to do her own thing, always turning back to make sure I was following. Hello independence.

  1. Beautiful pictures as always : ). What an exciting time for you with Che starting school and Poet starting to walk. It can be bittersweet watching our children reach new milestones but we are always forever changing I suppose. Xx

  2. hee! hee! As soon as I saw the stripes of the top of the photo, I thought ... oooh Che's joined little nippers - not quite :-) But still so wonderfully evovative of an Australian summer - the mornings that build up hotter and hotter, sunlight bouncing off the sea, the waves - cheerful and purposeful - roaring into shore, the sand burning out feet as we hop and skip back home for lunch ... then the afternoon sea breeze picking up and cooling us off, the waves growing smaller and running every which way, and the bands of little nippers and life savers replaced by couples strolling, children exploring the rocks, parents holding up the towel on the water's edge ... all these images and sounds on a grey rainy morning here in Melbourne from one wee striped hat! So lovely as always Jodi.

  6. I pulled the last of my cornflowers last weekend and had a bunch inside all week. I've just tossed the last of the fading blue away.

  8. Oh, dear. I just realized there's less than ten of these left before it's all completed. I'll miss this. Will you do another this next year?

    My best,

    P.S. Envious of your garden as we go into the very cold months. I've got lettuces, other leafy greens, and some herbs, some broccoli and cauliflower... But it in no way compares to the vivid blooms of spring flowers and tomato plants.

  15. This morning the news showed a large water spout and some severe storms in NSW from over the weekend. Hope you guys weren't affected badly.
