Autumn has begun to make her grand entrance across the Southern Hemisphere. Or at least that's what the calendar tells us. That's the thing I love about Australia, her landscapes are so vast and contrasting that the seasons don't show themselves in the same way they do in in North America. Gum trees don't turn, they're evergreen, and gardens never stop blooming here, they just slow down.
Since I arrived in Australia I've snapped hundreds of photo's of flowers, trees, and landscapes, expecting them to change, but they don't. When the blooms die-off, new ones replace them, and since the drought has broken, the rate of growth is staggering. Both my mother and my sister are brilliant gardeners, and their homes are ablaze with pots and shrubs spilling over with color. I've taken enough photo's to keep my sketchbook pages blooming for months.
Thanks for checking in. xx
