A walk in the park

The wartime rations continue, porridge is the staple for morning breakfast. I did some researching on line and during the 1940's, war in Australia, we weren't as harshly rationed as the Brits.  However, every one wanted to do their part for the war and agreed to do some rationing. We also had more choice as Australia did, at the time, grow a lot of it's own food and wasn't reliant on other countries to bring in food. 

While out and about, I managed to take a walk to one of our local gardens. We are currently in school holidays and the carnival of flowers is on show. This peacock display looked very fancy with all flowers.

They had a band playing some old time music and places where you could sit out to have a nice cold drink, which was needed today as the day did warm up.

I also was over at my garden 'lottie, and they were having their annual plant sale too. I didn't buy anything. There were a lot of people having a look as it was obviously a good day to be out and about. 

The carnival of flowers will run all week, so there's plenty of time to go and see all the flower gardens and displays. Just watch out for the Magpies.

I hope everyone is having a good day or evening where ever you are.


  1. Laurel Bank park is always beautiful, Shiralee. Nice weather this week for visiting the parks too.

    1. Nanna Chel, they did do the place up very pretty and lots of families out enjoy the day too. But Herries street traffic is cray cray.
