After a crazy start to the year I decided to head out of town with a very good friend and soak up some of our beautiful countryside. Our day out in Daylesford consisted of heading firstly to the trash and treasure market which is held at the railway station, you will always find plenty of interesting objects and the stall holders are a great source of info about the local area. We then went for lunch at the convent to re fuel and get ready for our amble through all the interesting shops along the High Street. If you are heading to Daylesford I would recommend the short drive onto Hepburn Springs which apart from all the fabulous spas is also where my favourite shop is located in the area. “Walk the Dog” a gallery shop were you will feel very comfortable browsing, there are lots of unique treasures from photography, jewellery, pottery, artwork, clothing ect. at very reasonable prices...... well worth a visit!
On our way out of Daylesford (clearly signed) we followed a dirt road to Daylesford Organics’ gateway store. Here we bought some organic seasonal produce directly from Brendon and Kate the producers. The couple are very welcoming and we enjoyed having a chat and watching their kids Indi, Jazzy and little Pepper enjoy the freedom and relaxed lifestyle they have. I couldn't help thinking how they were going to grow up having wonderful memories of their childhood.
We had a lovely day at Daylesford it is full of great architecture, beautiful scenery and great shopping for us girls to indulge ourselves in. I felt totally rejuvenated when I got home and was looking forward to getting busy again with Mulberry Tree Organic.
