Sweet violets....sweeter than the roses...
I went to visit my parents grave today and I was please to find violets in green grass rather than snow. The headstone is lovely with its springtime birds feeding the babies in the nest!
Mom loved to watch the birds. Its such a peaceful spot.


Knock, knock....this is at the front door to fairy land!! the gnomes playing at the fairy ring...

Bike Ride

When I said I needed to start doing some longer rides in preparation for our France biking trip in Aug. I anticipated starting off with 30 to 40 kms. This one was 56 kms. By 40ks I had had enough...but its good to push thru whats comfortable and win!!
We rode from Homebush Bay to Botany Bay and back. As you can see a sunny-bluesky day! Being at Brighton leSands was like being in another city, or even another country! I had never been there before...lots of Greek restuarants so likely lots of Greeks. We shared a seafood platter 3 ways with our friend Julian who came with us. Delicious!! Botany Bay is right next to the airport and has a runway out into the middle of it. If you make this pic bigger you can see an airplane just about to land.
The spa tonight was very welcome....its a feel good day!
