Here comes the sun!




As I mentioned yesterday, Saturday dawned dull and dreary.. but somehow I just knew that the sun would come out in time for my favourite hair-stylist to marry the love of her life. I found a spot up on the balcony so I could see her arrive, how sweet are the two little ones below, and make her way up the aisle. I knew she would be a beautiful bride and I wish them much future happiness, but R, please don't give up hair-styling for many years to come :)


The chapel of St. Michael the Archangel, situated within the grounds of the Catholic Education Centre, was built in1938 in the neo-gothic architectural style.. the high altar was made in Genoa, the windows in England and in 1952 Greek artist George Karafilakis was commissioned to paint the picture above the the altar. I knew the gardens had an English feel to them, they are the original Edwardian gardens that the centre was actually built around. Another week begins, happy Monday, take care and stay safe...

  19. Clever how you have only her flowers in color. Our hairdressers are important to us. When we moved here...it wasn't my doctor or dentist I missed it was my hairdresser. Beautiful church.
