the arbour

Arbour
Bougainvilleas
Blue skies seem like a distant memory these days. These were taken in November of last year. My summer is desperately in need of more days like this – lazy afternoons spent in beer gardens followed by leisurely walks along bougainvillea lined paths.

    I agree!! This "summer" is so depressing. Sick of the rain in Brisbane. I'm boycotting Southbank until the sun comes back πŸ™‚ ha

    They're such lovely photos of south bank!

    @AlwaysChasing: it is most certainly Southbank!

    @wikigirl: would you believe that as I started typing, IT BEGAN POURING DOWN WITH MORE RAIN. Ridiculous!

    @robynadams: what a coincidence!

    @blackswan: that would be quite nice. Unfortunately due to the high traffic in the area you would get trampled on haha

    @Jessica: agreed!

    Where I am we've been having a serious heat wave. Between 30 and 40 degrees C the past few days. It's lovely but it seems to be getting a bit much.

    @curiousconstellation: That would get a bit tiresome! Usually we get summers like that too but this year its all very monsoonal. Keep cool!

    @Vicky: it'll be here before you know it, I bet! I'm quite looking forward to re-doing summer in the UK haha

    @Sophia: great minds think alike!

    @Barbara: really? I do remember that I had these on the wrong focus settings so maybe that played a part? Sometimes I wish my Diana photos came out a bit clearer but hey, it's all fun and games isn't it?

    @Sara: I could see how that could happen – especially in the more colder/snowy parts!
