Melbourne Daily Photo
Hello, I created this blog because Melbourne is my city and I want people to see what a beautiful place it is. So come with me on a journey of discovery as we traverse the dining precincts, the culture, the laneways and hidden gems that make Melbourne marvellous.

Elephants and Parasols
At the So Frenchy So Chic 2013 festival in the grounds of Werribee mansion, I spotted this lovely parasol. Made from paper with bamboo frame, it looks so elegant with its grey elephants gaily around the circumference sporting pink hued flowers in between.
The perfect parasol for a warm, sunny day.
Today's quote: “Of doues I haue a dainty paire Which, when you please to take the aier, About your head shall gently houer, Your cleere browe from the sunne to couer, And with their nimble wings shall fan you That neither cold nor heate shall tan you, And like umbrellas, with their feathers Sheeld you in all sorts of weathers.” ~ Michael Drayton
