I love him! Made by a local artist, wish I could credit him/her!
Apologies for the appalling photo, husband took it on my phone. Lucky his job has nothing to do with photography! Anyway, on Saturday night we attended the Ronald McDonald House Gala Ball which was lots of fun and excitingly they reached the target of a million dollars raised in one night! Husband also acquired a signed jersey belonging to Cadel Evans from the 2011 Tour de France in the silent auction. He has been instructed to hang it in his office.
On the Sunday my Mum and I took the opportunity to duck out and explore a nearby garden that was open for the weekend:
Set on 8 acres with meandering paths beside creeks, waterfalls, ponds and rainforest gully's. It was a fabulous place to wander through and explore. Dotted throughout the garden were all sorts of lovely treasures.
Including this divine little fairy house.
One of the highlights of the garden is Lily:
She reclines in the garden permanently! Her face is carved out of sandstone and her body is made from moss. Truly magnificent!
The base of the waterfall, the water trickling down the rock has created a natural waterslide into the pool. The pirates would have loved to try it out!
The garden was also full of interesting plants.
Lastly, I think that this has probably done the blog rounds but as it is my favourite love song and now a love song to an iconic Sydney landmark I wanted to share it with anyone that might have somehow missed it:
