welcome to autumn :)

#Goodmorningbrisbane welcome to autumn :)

The mock oranges (Murraya paniculata ‘Exotica’ or orange jessamine) in the front yard and all across Brisbane bloomed in the last few days.

On Sunday, there were no flowers, just thousands of swollen buds ready to burst with the off white petals and that scent which just screams Brisbane.

On Monday, the trees had started to open up the flower buds.  The scent started to spread in the air.

 

On Tuesday, the trees were covered in a mass of flowers and the white carpet was starting to form on the patio and lawn.

This morning, as I opened the front door at 6:30 to welcome the day into the house I was hit with that mock orange perfume, it spread through the kitchen and said “autumn is here”. I watched as petals gently danced in the breeze to the patio and lawn below to form that white carpet which we all know so well.

I first met this girl on August 6, 2007 at this concert and then a few days later we were piled in a red Land Cruiser heading up to Noosa for an adventure. A 20hr adventure up the coast which was a great time.

6 and a half years later, we’ve all been through a lot.  This girl is a mumma, with a wee babe due very soon.

I made hummingbird patty cakes with cream cheese icing from the Crabapple Bakery cookbook to take along for the the blessing way.

A blessed belly, waiting for a rainbow baby to come earth side.
