Summer Days

This weekend I went to Cruden Farm, the property owned by Dame Elisabeth Murdoch near Frankston on the Mornington Peninsula.
They had a Twighlight Jazz Picnic and a few friends and I took a picnic tea down there to enjoy each others company, listen to some jazz and enjoy the beautiful surrounds of this property.  Dame Elisabeth is over 100 years of age and is a wonderful philanthropist who regularaly opens her property to the public in order to raise funds for various charities.  We actually saw her yesterday as she was transported around her property on ride on mower type vehicle. What a generous and gracious lady.
These are a few photos of her beautiful property.
PS....Monday 8/2....it is actually Dame Elisabeth's Birthday today....she turns 101....
