Fun Monday March 29

Janis is our host this week and below is her topic for this Fun Monday.


Hello my friends....this weeks challenge is all about Spring. Here is what I want you to do.....Take a photo of whatever represents Spring to You....and tell us why.


Well here in the land down under it isn't Spring, its Autumn (Fall), I for one am not unhappy about that as Autumn produces some of the years best weather here in South East Queensland where I live, sadly because the area is Sub-Tropical we don't get a very big range of Fall Colour in our trees.

All this aside it is a very nice time of year which marks the start of the 9 months of weather that makes our region so very popular, the other 3 months of Summer can be a different matter all together!!!

Please click on photos to enbiggen.

This is a typical Autumn evening viewed from my front veranda.

Sure I would love to see a bit more of these lovely colours but taken all round this time of year here in Gympie is pretty darned good.

Just a reminder of what Spring is like from the same veranda when the beautiful Jacarandas are in bloom.

Now join me as I go to see the other players entries. (link at top of page)

Peter, you Autumn looks like ours in Southern California. Love the shot of the Jacaranda tree. We had one at our last house. They are so beautiful, if messy.

I love fall more than spring! It's always such a relief from the unbearable heat and humidity of our summer!
