Tiptoe-ing through…

Tulips?  I love them and the photo of me on this blog was taken at the Tesselaar Tulip Festival a couple of years ago amidst all the glory.  The Festival opens this Thursday and be warned – it’s incredibly popular with locals and tourists alike.  I’d go during the week on a cooler day as it gets pretty warm towards the end of Spring.Exhib Poster-01

If the weather stays nice this coming weekend – the St Andrews Festival is on this Sunday if you missed the recent Wattle Festival as well as YouthFest 2017 in Macleod.  If you’re after something more artistic, my friend and fellow Bundoora Homestead Board member Valentina Maxwell-Tansley is holding her Axiom of Devour exhibition opening – an exploration of our relationship with consumerism – this coming Friday night at the Brunswick Gallery as part of this year’s Melbourne Fringe Festival.

I had a pretty quiet weekend but did catch up with a couple of people on Friday including a lunch time pit stop at Brandy Cafe in Kew.  If you drive down Edgevale Road from Cotham Street, it’s in a very picturesque spot with lots of very pretty houses as you head to the intersection where it’s located.  I had the Shaksouka lunch special which was fresh and yummy.  Speaking of cafes, I’ll be back with a local profile later this week.
