green

 
It's RSC time and the colour selected for May is GREEN. Here is my block for the challenge.

It's about all the quilty-type sewing I managed to do here this weekend other than mending. Yawn.

I did head to the Southern Highlands yesterday for the Bowral Public School Market. A combination of food and crafts. Mostly, I focus on the food - sourdough breads, jams, cheeses, cakes, pastries, farm-fresh fruits and vegetables. 

Bowral Public School was built in the late 1800s and the government architecture of that era is marvellous. The same can't be said for the soulless brick and aluminium monstrosities erected in the 1970-80s.

 I do so like that sandstone feature. Across the road from the school is one of the reasons why the Southern Highlands are much visited this time of year.

The region is ablaze with the colours of autumn. This specimen is a real beauty. We are actually having an autumn this year and you can feel Winter nipping at its heels. The last of my sassanqua camellias is in full bloom.

It's rather bleak today so I'm off to scoff the treats I bought at the markets yesterday, watch a movie and relax. Well, it is Mother's Day here.
