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.
Linking with the lovely ladies ,Rosy and Sacramento for Share-in-Style and Jessica from Elegantly Dressed and Stylish for Turning Heads Tuesday.
