• SOLDIERING ON • A late night call for an early morning rose order is usually not a problem. However after a 40 degree day I was nervous as to what I would find. To my surprise they had weathered the intense heat and were soldiering on - #gogirl !

Just love this black and white bedspread (from one of the many homeware stores in Ballarat!) in our third bedroom. And there’s a little charcoal drawing on the wall to the right in this picture.... I made a long long time ago, a still life fruit bowl. We decorated The Clubhouse with many old keepsakes from our family over the years. And while we live abroad for a few more years, we hope you can enjoy them for us. #hep#hepburnngs #wandervictoria #dayget #visithepburnshire #familytime #familyholiday #friendsgetaway #friendsgettogether #spacountry #theclubhousehepburn #victoria #australia #thisisaustralia #hepburn #lifeisbeautiful #ins#instatravel #countryliving #wellbeingregion #daylesfordmacedonranges #travelgram #livethelittlethings #pursuepretty #thatsdarling #wanderlust #instagood #instatravel #handmadedecor #homedesign #interiors

Why do I look so happy you say? I’m dropping the kids at grandmas and heading to @springcreekcottage for some me time.

Our neighbouring attractions at #newlyn ! Repost from @daylesford.getaways using @RepostRegramApp - 25 years in the making, the Maze in Newlyn just moments from Daylesford is a seriously impressive feat. It’s 2 degrees cooler inside the Maze, that’s a fact! Together with an incredible garden cafe and loads of fun activities in a seriously beautiful setting, it’s a great day out. 👌🏼. @mazehouse_daylesford . . . . . . #maze #gardens #day#daylesfordfun #vis#visitvictoria #roomwithaview #getaway #countryescape #daylesford #daytrip #daylesfordgetaways #visitvictoria #wellbeingregion #wandervictoria #travel #australia #bookingcom #stayzau #daylesfordmacedonranges #trentham

• THE ROSE & THORN • A poignant quote on life. Daily over the picking season I am elevated to a wandering cloud by a rose's sheer beauty, colour and fragrance when an obscure thorn often, painfully, brings me back to reality reminding me that nothing in life comes easy and there is always a balance of good with bad - it's how you navigate the two which ultimately enables you to achieve your dreams.

The view from today’s office. We delayed the start of Mel and Michael’s ceremony today - and our reward was a break in the weather and a ceremony outdoors - just as the bride requested! #lovemyjob #meetthedicas

• COFFEE TIME • Well it's coffee time at our place and a chance to review progress In the paddocks. Just picked, a new variety we are trialling this season - "Honey Dijon". Jury is out on whether everyone likes her, however her cafe latte and antique tones really are growing on me and the muted ambiance she evokes is lovely combined with her fruity fragrance, certainly suits our new kitchen and dining area. What do you think, is she in or out for our ongoing range?
