Memories of Tasmania

 Although a sparkling white, pristine bench may appeal to some, I really liked the weathered look of this garden seat. How many secrets could it tell ??!


..... and this delightful little cherub, "minding" the pretty hydrangeas, won my heart !


  
 .... how about these scrumptious-looking apples growing in the front garden -Tasmania is not called "The Apple Isle" for nothing !
 

..... a sudden downpour of rain had me sheltering under this large tree and I really took a shine to the large urn on the pedestal (weird how some things "grab" you !)
  
 These yachts were braving the unpredictable elements as we watched from the warmth and safety of the house on the hill (yes - I know, getting a bit soft with the advancing years !)



With the rainbow peeking through the branches of this elegant gum, I was captivated by the watery sheen on the trunk and limbs.

and inviting you to visit that blogsite for other scenes from around the world.
