In reality Brisbane is so close to Tenterfield being only 4 hours or so but it always feels like a different world.  The colours are different, so signs of autumn and memories of Tiney are everywhere.   I have always loved pink and pretty…

If I thought yesterday's sunrise was pretty, today's is stunning.  Loving these Brisbane mornings and even though it is the middle of winter it feels like summer - preparing us gently for summer in the USA! #startthedaywithsomethingbeautiful

Extreme weather event did not last long in Brisbane.  I just love saying extreme weather event.  Without fail, this plant always makes me nostalgic for Christmas.  #startthedaywithsomethingbeautiful
