’Twas brillig, and the slithy toves

This weekend has been so beautiful - both in weather and experiences. It was warm enough at dusk to go for a stroll in our neighbourhood park, amongst the trees and the low light of the evening sun.



I've shown this dress before on this blog, but I wore it with black tights last time, which in retrospect looked too severe. It may not be obvious in these pictures but the tights are a pretty teal colour.



Sunset is one of my favourite times of day. Everything looks so whimsical in the failing light. I love the long shadows that are strewn towards the east.

Miss Karen: I love warm evenings too, and that's a shame you don't have beautiful places in your suburb :(

Esme: thank you!

The Paper Doll: I love the lighting too, we couldn't resist taking photos on such a beautiful evening :)

A cat of impossible colour: yes, I think so too! thank you!

What a novel idea for a blog!
I love the idea. Something original to follow!!

It's kind of like a movie but you get to watch it all year. Very intriguing.

Anyway thanks for saying hi, I'll definitely be following this blog.
Very clever.

I do wonder what you will do next year though? haha
