Sunday lunch at Vaucluse House = going back in time = Sunday Selections ...

The beautiful Vaucluse House was built in the early 1900s by
Us three generations initially went for high tea ...
the wafting aromas food enticed us to choose lunch instead...
Chicken, Fennel & Morrocan Spices ...
two of us chose crispy flathead fillets, handcut chips and aioli ...
both scrumptious and arrived piping hot ...
pink camellias hung from huge thick ancient branches ...
this gorgeous Norfolk Pine with branches that caressed the ground ...
a blue eyed goat looked fat and happy ...
 tree roots cut through the earth for metres and metres away from the trunk
stables ooozed history ...
we peeked through windows at the lavishness of the era ...
rain started ... we fled for shelter ...
more tree pics tomorrow.

That goat does look fat! LOL!

I am always more interested in the stables and the kitchens etc in these big old mansions, though the glimpse through the window is enticing!

I love the tree roots, I made a vase that had a some additions that were a bit like those roots. I am now sitting here gazing at those roots and daydreaming about how they would look over a series of bowls. Thanks Cherie :)

I tried taking pictures of tree roots before. I have yet to see any with big beautiful roots like the ones belonging to that tree you photographed. Very beautiful.
