My Ode to Autumn

My ode to Autumn is a little late this year , that’s the problem when you are away from home for 

nearly six weeks, and the trees are shedding their leaves at a great rate  you capture whatever 

colour you can before it disappears  for this year.

Autumn in Tasmania is my favourite time of year as the days are clear and sunny and the bounty of
nature’s harvest is at its peak producing the most wonderful apples and pears. In years past Tasmania
was known as the Apple Isle and exported apples all over the world.

Autumn also reflects my favourite colours , yellows, oranges , browns, although I do wear them year round .Reflecting on this they are the colours along with an orange red and chatreuse green that suit
my colouring , both hair and skin, the best. This reminds me of getting my colours done moons ago ,
that at the time I took little notice of ( I was still influenced by the colour of the season) . I could have
saved heaps of time and money but that is all part of the learning process,

For my ode to Autumn I wore a silky coat from Australian label Ark ,over a taupe and brown top from Marlene Birger , black pants from Nicola Waite. My little orange hat with its fur pompom I
purchased last year in Paris , the orange gloves were also a Paris souvenir , sunnies from Karen Walker, brown boots by Lloyd , from many Winters ago.

    Orange colour in Autumn is pretty, it recalls the colours of nature … your outfit is a lovely ode to the new season…I tend to match Australia to kiwi instead of apples. I remember that some years ago the only kiwi sold in Italy were from your country…

      Thank you Dan , I do love the colours of Autumn. You have taught me something, I had no idea Australia exported kiwi fruits to Italy in the past, there you go always something to learn.
