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.

Jane Cook created the sea-themed arrangement below.
Salamanca Market was as lively as ever, and the whirling leaves matched the natural dyes used in the up-cycled textiles below.
“The Foley Artists” provided busking musical entertainment, complete with golden masks.
