National Arboretum Canberra 2

This morning we are finally going to purchase a new oven! The oven blew up in February and we haven't been able to reach a decision on which one to buy. I think the time has come for me to give up my dream oven and just buy anything!
Lovely scene, great colour and texture

I hope the over shopping went well. We got a new one a couple of years ago - I think we opened and closed all the demo models in the shop about ten times each before we decided!

What a lovely country scene. The colorful leaves of your autumnal trees has me longing for that season... something that's very far away, with a lot of hot weather in the meantime. :(

I replaced our stove last summer. One of the electric burners was on its way out and every time you turned it on sparks flew. Not good! My only requirement was that I didn't want to clean those coils and the little dishes under them anymore. So I went to the store and bought it myself! I'm glad you found one you were happy with. Nice shot!

@olivetreeann -this is an under the bench oven. My hotplates, which are gas, are in the bench top. I wanted to replace all of it but it would have meant cutting into the granite benchtop and costing thousands of dollars. I settled for an electric oven which has digital controls. I will get my dream oven one day, most likely when I get my dream kitchen.

Never give up on your dream oven. Especially as you'll need it for the background of the shots for your cookery book ;) Love the colours and shadows in this shot xx

The trees in the foreground add so much to this scene, they are perfectly planted to accent that fabulous building. We can't make it without our ovens, can we? I don't know how you have made it these last months without an oven. Whew.

@nicolecampbell I'm sure it will come someday- but it sounds like you found a good "in the meantime" solution.

This is an awesome scene; so beautiful!

At times I consider trading in my electric oven/stove for a gas one ...but I'm not certain that I could learn to cook with gas. For now I'm just sticking with my electric one as long as it keeps working -- which I hope will be for many more years! It's nice that your new one has digital controls!

@adayinmallacoota - thanks for the follow. It hasn't been too cold yet, only first thing in the morning. I have only worn my coat a couple of times this winter.
