Mellow Yellow


Mellow Yellow, a song released by English singer Donovan in the mid 1960's or the colour of deciduous
trees in early Autumn or maybe today I am just feeling mellow wearing yellow, take your pick.


Yellow on the Village Green at Westbury, a lovely little town about 30 minutes drive from home. Westbury was founded as a village garrison in 1828 and laid out on a grand scale in anticipation of becoming the main gateway to Tasmania's northwest. Although this never eventuated,its elegant buildings and countless quiet lanes are testament to this early ambition. I am standing by a silhouette depicting two Irish exiles,John Mitchell and Thomas Francis Meagher, who were revolutionaries transported here as political exiles.Aided by Westbury villagers they escaped and went on to become legendary figures of Irish history.


Admiring this wonderful old Sequoia tree on the Village Green. It has its own name plaque and is named ,
not so imaginatively Big Tree.


Standing at the entrance to one of Westburys early buildings, known as the White House. Named not for its colour but after the original owner Thomas White, who established a store known as White's Token Store.
He founded penny tokens on site to be used in the store. The site is now a home and bakery.



A early Autumn chill in the air gave me an excuse to wear these leopard print gloves .

I am wearing a yellow jacket by Australian designer Trent Nathan from my favourite recycle store Return to Splendour paired with my black pants from Moyuru, black clutch and leopard print sandals.

  2. You look marvelous in yellow! What a lovely jacket, good on its own, but when styled in such an elegant manner, it is simply a striking piece! And thank you for a little bit of history, I always like when you give some historical details about the place you take photos at.

  5. So very lady-like, but with your own unique twist! Love this yellow jacket against the black pants - splendid, especially with the leopard gloves. I adore discovering quaint little towns like Westbury and enjoy "traveling" with you! So much history and other gems in little towns, but one really should look closely just like you do! Then these places open themselves to us. :) Enjoy your week, Jill! xxx

  8. When I worked in a clothing store and a woman walked out of the dressing room in yellow and looked gorgeous, I begged her to buy the piece. So few people can wear yellow. You can! And I am so envious. Your photograph of your jacket against the dark Sequoia tree is a beauty.

  12. You look lovely here! Good excuse for wearing gloves when the seasons change. We're headed in to Spring here by the end of the week. I love the idea of wearing more white.
    I remember my sister making up a routing for physical education class in middle school to a Donovan song. He was a favorite back in the day.
