Something different for you today :)
A few pics from my drive up to the shop, through the beautiful Gold Coast Hinterland.
We all like to see landscapes that are exotic to us, and while these sights are not so to me, they certainly make for a very pleasant hours' drive to work.
I took all these pics while driving along so some of them have some reflection from the windows, oh well. The scenery changes from small properties, to large & neatly kept farms, to tropical rainforest.
About 40 minutes away from home now, that's Tamborine Mountain in the distance.
At the base of the mountain now.
5 minutes further on, and the trees start closing in.
Look at that weak winter sky! So pale! In fact I took these pics a couple of months ago, so yes, this is what the dead of winter looks like here.
How gorgeous is this! It gets a bit hard to take more pics until I arrive at the shop, this top part of the road certainly is winding.
Have a look at our beautiful garden, just out the front of the shop. The arbor there is our entry from the footpath, you walk through it and on to the path in the next pic. Follow the path around behind the big camellias and you're at the shop door.
The lavender is in full bloom at the moment. We also have camellias, nasturtiums, massive daisy bushes and a few other flowers whose names I don't know, all so pretty.
Lavender pics taken today...can you tell how much warmer it is now?!
Edited to add, for those overseas.....
