The 100th small pleasures post! Gosh…well, in a week that saw quite a bit of winter sunshine, work trips for both of us, and friends for a long Sunday lunch, it was a full week.
I always love this view from the top of the cable car, and on a lovely sunny winter day, it really lifts the spirits.
From stunning camellias at the back of our house to the magnolia beginning to bloom in the Botanic Gardens, there are a lot of flowers showing their faces right now. Our magnolia is in bud too (see the featured image at the top of the post).
I have done the first two days of the ‘couch to 5km’ challenge, but on day 1 I stopped to admire these two beautiful ducks, which appear to be Cayuga, with a suspicion they might be crossed with a Muscovy as there is pink on the bill.
A long Sunday lunch with friends.
Thanks to Mani over at A New Life Wandering for the original idea.
