Love that slanty 'between seasons' light...

I love this time of year here.  Autumn.  Cooler afternoons, a chill in the air in the morning, and that wonderful slanty light.

In a sub-tropical climate here in Brisbane, gardens can be 'green all year'.  But I love the rolling seasons in a garden, and in my own I have planted it that way.  In Autumn we are starting to get some beautiful contrasts of bright leaves, grey trunks and clear blue winter skies to come.

Trees like the 'Illawarra Flame Tree' and 'Liquid Amber'; which by their names you can tell will throw some great autumnal colour of yellows and reds, as it gets colder, before dropping leaf altogether.

And already now, the birch leaves are falling and the enormous Frangipani trees in front of our house (they are taller than our roof and estimated to be more than 80 years old!) have dropped leaf and are arching their mottled grey arms in the sky.

Lazy autumn light to read away the afternoon - if you're an 8 year old!

And that lovely slanty light.   And the shadows it throws.   I just can't seem to get enough of it and am happily clicking away in the afternoons.

These grey metal lanterns throw some lovely patterns in the afternoon sun, and have candles inside to twinkle away on a verandah table at night.  They are not currently in the store, but are available to order now.  Email me if you are interested.

I hope you're enjoying the changing seasons where you are, whether it be Spring or Autumn.
