Littles Love Lanyon


Saturday was a completely gorgeous Autumn day...perfect for a morning at Lanyon with our Littles. The Lanyon Plant Fair is run by Open Gardens Australia and is a magnificent event held in the grounds of the Lanyon Homestead.



Plant stalls, sculpture, guest speakers, garden & house guided tours...


Gelato with a view to cherish...
A vintage machinery display by the Canberra & District Engine Club.
A cottage garden to covet...
A children's marquee with all sorts of fantastic crafts and activities...
Including THE best kids guided nature trail.
Harry really loved wandering about with his fellow botanical artists carrying a little stool, clipboard and a pencil. He peppered his tour guide with all sorts of questions as they discussed plant varieties, illustration techniques and a little bit of Lanyon history.
It was beautiful to stand back and watch. The artist in me was cheering them see them all so absorbed in their drawings was wonderful.
The Jackman meanwhile...spent a great deal of time running about on the lawns in superhero mode.
It's on again today from 10am. Definitely worth the short drive south to Lanyon Homestead.
There's nothing like a family outing in the country!
