  1. That baby boy hat is just gorgeous! Thank you for hosting such a fun link up! I can't wait for 2017 :-)

    1. Thank-you! I'm looking forward to 2017 too x

  2. Gosh we are just starting to get summery weather, I want lots more of that before I think of Autumn. I've been a bit bad on the water intake lately.
    Have a great week.

    1. I'm positive there's heaps of summer left :-) Thanks for joining in again Julie!

  3. It does look hot and dry in your part of the world Sarah...compared to the scenery we usually see in your photos. What a gorgeous little hat. Happy Sunday x

    1. I usually have the camera pointed in the direction of where we water, around the chickens and a tiny bit in a couple of paddock :-) But it's really dry this year, the years of poor rain seems to have caught up and really be showing now x

  4. It is indeed looking crunchy but still lovely in your Here & Now, as always, Sarah. We're still rather soggy over here - it has been an extra wet spring/summer this far over here. Everything is growing well, but flowers, berries, and fruit are no where near as mature as they would usually be by this point and I have yet to even take my summer clothes out for the seasonal closet swap. Such a difference living over here in NZ vs. my Aussie days.

    1. Thank-you Laura! That does sound like a difference. It's nice and cool here today for a change, but we've definitely been having summer weather. I hope you get a little sunshine soon. Too much of any kind of weather isn't that enjoyable x

  5. Thank you for hosting this again (and all year), lovely! So nice to see what you've been up to. :) That hat is sooo lovely. The colours are beautiful. :) xx

    1. You are most welcome - thank YOU for joining in again! xx
