October has been a month of colour, of spring flowers.

A month of changeable weather, the southern hemisphere’s equivalent to “April Showers”. There have been warm sunny spring days, but also mornings when we have woken to snow on Mount Wellington, along with cold southerly winds.

It has been a month of rainbows, which is a nice way to sum up my month of colour posts.


The view from our kitchen looks towards Hobart’s Casino. I wonder what the response would be, if I showed them this photo and asked for the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow!
