Spring has so far been a joy to experience. The suburban streetscape is budding with the promise of growth, encouraged by warmer daytime temperatures. Today’s blue sky and sunshine is forecasted to achieve 29oC.
While southeast Queensland’s Winter temperatures could not be described as harsh, we have limited our time sitting rugged up in the courtyard.
Our modest tropical resort themed outdoor area is slowly evolving. It now boasts a three person spa heated to 35oC. To the left golden cane palms, mother-in-law tongues, and agaves provide a focal point to rest our eyes. Behind stands a stylised skateboarder panel, supporting variegated jasmine. The almost daily post workday dip was well worth braving the cooler temperatures, over the last few weeks.
This moment’s easy Sunday feeling is enhanced by a powder puff aroma from lemongrass and lavender incense sticks. Pale grey smoke lazily floats around our feet and ankles before wafting up; nostril tickling.

Great description and the photo is lovely. Sounds like a wonderful place to relax whatever the temps. Glad you have it. Would love to see more photos.
Thank you, Eileen. I will post more pictures 🙂
This always makes me smile as I spent the weekend putting out the autumn things.
ANother reason to visit down under (besides meeting you) is to experience this opposite season.
Indeed, you could go from Autumn to Spring, stay 6 months to experience Summer too. You would then go into Spring back home.
How topsy turvy it must be to someone like me to see Easter in the fall and Christmas in the summer months. I don’t suppose you all do Halloween, which is synonymous with autumn.
Halloween is quite popular here, crazily in Spring 😊
