My Design Weekends

wet weekends and barbour jackets

Deirdre Brennan - Sunday, March 18, 2012



Yes another wet weekend in the Southern fact most places are wet.  I was reminded just how beautiful the gardens at Milton Park Country House Hotel are when I went on a long the rain......all very atmospheric. The trees are some of the oldest of their species in Australia.....beech and avenues of oak. 

The view to the east is absolutely spectacular....they are actually higher than Mt Gibralter....hence the misty conditions!! 


Having dealt with the Hunter wellington boots I am now moving on to the Barbour jacket.  Thank you Annabel for the reminder about the Liberty lined Barbours.  Have struggled to find an image of these and the one shown below is not a particularly good example of the prints that are available or the jacket style.

Everybody in the Southern Highlands should own one of these jackets...essential for our climate here.  This year the entire east coast of Australia should treat themselves.
