Beautiful Weekend

Sharing a lovely sunny weekend with family and friends - Perfect!
A little knitting for World Wide Knit in Public day. (no surprises there)
Strawberry ripple mits
A lovely tour of the Botanical Gardens - there is much to see no matter the season. 
Plenty of people were out enjoying the winter sunshine.
The leaves that forgot to fall
There are some amazing structures and monuments around the gardens.
This monument to Queen Victoria actually has four separate poses celebrating different events in her life.
excuse the finger!
There was cake, well this long weekend is in celebration of the Queen's birthday.
This model of an old treadle sewing machine is animated like the real thing and plays music when you open the drawer. 
A gift from SJ - about 6 inches tall

Hope the sun is shining in your part of the world.
