All I see is purple!

October is one of my favourite months, whether I am here in Brisbane or in England!

In Brisbane, I am surrounded by the mists of Jacaranda purple.

The colour of the individual flowers are so delicate, yet put the flowers altogether, it is a colour so strong and striking.

The other day I bought a pair of thongs/flip-flops in Jacaranda purple. The colour is soaking into my brain and is influencing me in my purchases!

My craft box hasn’t escaped the beautiful colour either!

Seeing the beautiful Jacarandas means that I am not seeing the beautiful rich russets and ochres of an Autumnal October in England. I used to love kicking up the Autumn leaves, making them rustle under my feet and collecting the acorns and conkers in my pockets until they were bulging at the seams. However having said that, I think I am enjoying the warmer weather that Brisbane has to offer in October more than having up wrap up warm in lots and lots of layers.

Until next time.
