Wether the Weather

Was just watching the square box in the lounge room and saw that the northern hemisphere is off on their extreme weather patterns again!  And did you see New Zealand blanketed with snow - all of it?

Bermuda...my favourite place in the world other than Tassie of course (I was there is 2003) has been hurricaned again!  Poor Bermuda - a little fish hook in the middle of the Atlantic not much different in size to Bruny Island, battered and bruised by a monster swirling out there in the ocean.

Don't you just love those beautiful colours on the houses?  How wonderful it must be to have a community happy enough to paint their homes such gorgeous hues - much better than four shades of red brick don't you think?


  1. Hey Rowena - hope you are having a lovely Spring Day.
    Bermuda makes our little storm seem like nothing !
    You were so lucky to have had a trip - what a range of inspiration just this one photo can offer - and no Mission Brown to be seen :)

  2. P.S. Thanks for posting my widget Rowena :)
