Bunnies at Province
I adore this Easter Display
This bamboo seat is also incredible...
After the Anzac Day March and Ceremony...this older gentleman marched with the younger kids. And here he is shaking their hands.
Two ol' diggers chatting to each other. I like the behind the scenes shots where everyone is relaxed and perfectly candid.
And of course Leroy Brown who received plenty of attention from passers by. Here he is watching the bands march by.
One thing I love about where we live is it's close enough to walk, run or bike to get into town. And always it's such a pleasant experience admiring neighbours gardens, shop displays, stopping for coffee and it has definitely been part of our Easter Long Weekend experience this year.
Yesterday we decided to take Leroy Brown into town to watch the Anzac Day Parade, something that I've always loved to do. On our way we passed Province one of my favourite little boutiques and I had to take some quick snaps of their Easter display. The contemporary take on a rustic table setting is just perfect in my eyes and I just adored the bowl of lemons (rather enviously as I wait for my lemon tree to dazzle me with ripe lemons).
But back to the reason why we visited town, the Anzac Day Parade. We happened to find a couple of seats in front of our fave laneway, tie Leroy's leash to a door and watch the parade in a fantastic position. I felt a little emotional this year. Normally I feel proud and excited to watch these men and women walk past which I still did. But definitely I felt teary and I'm certain if there hadn't been a crowd of people watching I'd have had a good cry. I think it's because there seems to be so much going on in the world and it's our defence force that are often there on the frontline experiencing this. But I'm also grateful for the men and women who before us served this great country of ours in times gone by. I've also enjoyed reading fellow bloggers accounts of their Anzac Day experience and what it means to them and their families. I really think it is a day that binds this country together.
Enjoy your last day of the holiday all.
PS The last image is of course Leroy Brown (and yes he is very bad....9 pairs of shoes later). See how big he's grown.
