Summer colour







1. Capsicums from the garden, coincidentally in Christmas colours 
2. Dusk in the creek with the sunset behind me and the moon rising in front of me
3. A red, dusty track behind our house
4. Our first tomatoes for the summer
5. Tasty shades of brown, coffee and homemade fruit mince pies
6. A snowy white star made by my generous and creative friend, Jodie.

Merry Christmas blog friends, stay cool.  I hope you have a restful and happy holiday season.
