Today we had our first true Spring day in Melbourne! The sun shone all day, the temperature climbed steadily until it reached 19˚C and the lovely weather induced us to go out for a walk in the middle of the day. We could hardly fail to notice the trees blossoming: Wattles, grevilleas, wild plums, almonds, magnolias...

A cup of coffee in the sunshine at the Fairfield Boathouse, while looking out onto the Yarra and the Fairfield Pipe Bridge was true bliss!

This post is part of the Monday Mellow Yellows meme,
and also part of the Blue Monday meme,
and also part of the Through my Lens meme,
and also part of the Seasons meme.


  1. Beautiful photos. What a lovely place

  2. Hope you remembered that (only) this past Sunday (Aug. 14) Seasons had a blog break because of family events!
    Can imagine you are delighted for Spring to have begun! Lovely captures:) Hope to see you back coming Sunday!

  3. The second image with the stillness of the water is amazing. Happy spring! We're almost to fall here but it's 100 degrees out today . . .

  4. Bi Nick, I am inspired to get a lovely iced coffee to drink right now. Smile. However,I would not be where you were with such a beautiful place to enjoy. Great photos.

    We are watching the Olympics as I attempt to visit all of my special participants on Blue Monday.
    Thank you for joining Blue Monday and being so faithful even when I can't visit.

  5. If a person is going to enjoy a break from work or home, this would be the place to sit and contemplate the meaning of life.

  6. I want to rest on those benches overlooking the water. So peaceful! Thank you for linking in with "Through My Lens"
