End Of an Era

Last Friday was my dad's last day at his job. After 32 years at the same job he is now a retired man! These pictures were taken in one of the garden areas where he used to work. His coworkers had a retirement bbq for him over the lunch hour which was really nice. I went with my mum, sister and aunt to celebrate with my dad and his colleagues. My dad was head gardener at one of the 5 garden areas (where he planned the bed designs and helped with the planting etc.) and worked at the other areas occasionally throughout the year. The gardens were my favourite place to go as a child and I always thought that if I got married I would love to do it in the area where he worked. The gardens are so beautiful I am glad I was able to take some outfit pictures there, I am going to miss being able to go in and explore whenever I want. My dad's retirement definitely marks the end of an era. I am so proud of him and the work he has done over the years. Congratulations to my dad and his retirement!


  1. Love the dress, but when I first saw the first photo, I didn't even think it was you!
    Congrats to your dad.

  2. Wow, what a beautiful job and such a beautiful place and memories too! Happy retirement to you dad!! ;-)
