Cee’s Midweek Madness Challenge: March Spring or Autumn Season

Marching into Autumn

It’s autumn here although we are still getting a lot of fine summery days here in northwest Tasmania. I have heard that the Rhododendron Gardens near Burnie are showing some fine colours but we haven’t been out to see it yet. We have car events we want to go to for the next couple of weeks but we’ll try to get to the Rhododendron Gardens after Easter. Daylight Saving Time ends this weekend I think so from now on our days will be much shorter. We do prefer to get back to Sisters Beach before dark as there are a lot of animals out and about after dusk and it is too easy to hit one. Naomi already hit a potoroo one night which was not good for either her car or the potoroo.

Here are the Rhododendron Gardens last autumn.

I took this a bit closer to home, at our local shop.

This tree was showing wonderful autumn colours.

I love to see the acorns in autumn.



I was born in England in 1957 and lived there until our family came to Australia in 1966. I grew up in Adelaide, South Australia, where I met and married my husband, David. We came together over a mutual love of trains. Both of us worked for the railways for many years, his job was with Australian National Railways, while I spent 12 years working for the STA, later TransAdelaide the Adelaide city transit system. After leaving that job I worked in hospitality until 2008. We moved to Tasmania in 2002 to live in the beautiful Huon Valley. In 2015 David became ill and passed away in October of that year. I currently co-write two blogs on WordPress.com with my sister Naomi. Our doll blog "Dolls, Dolls, Dolls", and "Our Other Blog" which is about everything else but with a focus on photographs and places in Tasmania. In November 2019 I began a new life in the house that Naomi and I intend to make our retirement home at Sisters Beach in Tasmania's northwest. Currently we have five pets between us. Naomi's two dogs Toby and Teddy and cats, Tigerwoods and Panther and my cat Polly. My dog Cindy passed away aged 16 in April 2022.
