Out & About: An Autumn Day

There was a crisp chill in the air in Hobart today, and brown leaves floated on the wind. We’re starting to understand the level of rugging-up that will be required to survive a winter here.

Lots of little things caught my eye as we visited a market and flower show. I must remember to continue seeking out these tiny inspirations during the coldest months, when all we want to do is hibernate.

A stroll through a market is one of life’s great “simple pleasures”.

  1. Beautiful! Loved this post and your photos. Sounds like you had a wonderful day! Your fab photos reminded me of my favourite place in London, the Columbia Road flower market. I go there at least twice a month (it’s only on Sundays) and they always have live music, awesome food stalls and fantastic atmosphere!

    • Thanks! I love the idea of the flower market you describe. Will have to go there some time πŸ™‚
