Autumn fete

 The first of March is the beginning of Autumn here although the official date is the 20th of March. Still the weather is looking very Autumn-ly especially after the hot days we have been having and I am looking forward to Autumn and Winter as they are my favourite times of year. The beginning of March usually sees me attending the annual Bookfest but I am trying to avoid buying more books; instead I went for a browse at a little Fete held close by.

I came home with morning tea and ... a book (LOL!) but for 20 cents how could I say no?

I also brought one of my favourite plants Heliotrope. I love the scent of these flowers. The flower also features in art by Cicley Mary Barker for the Heliotrope fairy. If you've seen this image and know the scent of the flowers it's easy to know why the fairy is shown smelling these beautiful scented blooms.
And I brought a ground cover - Cerastium Tomentosum, the common name is snow-in-summer. I think it will look very pretty in a pot. I was also looking for herbs for the container/dye garden I want to do for my goals but they already had what I have, but for a couple of dollars I came home afterwards with some nice items.
Have a great day!

  1. Shiralee, yell out if you want any of the herbs we have. I can take some cuttings or whatever. I can drop them around if you like or just call in.
