Saturday was another glorious day so I decided to escape the city and go for a drive to the Southern Highlands which are about a 1.5 hour drive from where I live.
There is a thriving art and craft community in the Highlands and I’d read about a craft festival in the small village of Burrawang.I loved the tapestry weaving of Dimity Kidston who runs workshops at the Sturt Gallery in Mittagong. Something else on my list of things to do!There were lots of cottages and picket fences.
and drove along the delightfully named Sheepwash Road (I didn’t see any sheep, washed or otherwise), or any kangaroos,but I did see lots ofand some beautiful waratah which is the state floral emblem of NSW.At my last stop I wandered under boughs of wisteria. I adore those delicate tendrils of purple.It was a delightful day and reminded me how good it is for the soul to escape the hustle and bustle of the city sometimes.
