Golden Autumn Days

 It's a real shame to be leaving now. This is absolutely my favourite time of year in Tasmania. Misty moisty mornings, mellow sunshine and clear blue skies, with just a hint of melancholy. In Japan and Korea they celebrate the turning of the leaves and the papers list the places where they can best be seen. I think it's a lovely custom and one we could well implement here. I'm still trying to decide where the best viewing places might be. These pictures were mostly taken in the Sandy Bay area and the Fitzroy Gardens -the little park at the top of the hill, where the nannies of the wealthy used to push their perambulators.

Even native trees such as this fig are putting on some colour
