On a picture perfect Spring day we drove 35 kilometres south east of Perth to Araluen (an eastern states Aboriginal word meaning 'running waters', 'singing waters' or 'a place of lilies), to enjoy the 150 acres of Botanic parkland.
This is a magical place to be in Spring, where tulips and others meet the Australian bush.
I'm going to let the below numerous photos speak for themselves and I hope that you get a sense of the time that we spent in Araluen. I fell in love with this place and its perfume.
It's Saturday morning here in my corner of the globe and after I publish this post I'm off to the farmers market to buy my weekly fruit and vegetables. This week I'll be buying a little extra as I have my siblings and their adult children and partners joining us for a picnic in our backyard tomorrow. Here's hoping for a lovely weather day to compliment our intentions for a relaxing gathering.
Best wishes to all my readers for a weekend filled with fun and love
