Tuesday 15 November
Life has been busy and my early morning walks have fallen by the wayside. Yesterday, even with a very busy morning schedule, I was determined not to miss another morning. Nature rewarded me a hundredfold. A stifling 33C day followed, and I did have to take an unheard-of afternoon Nana nap, but as I set out at 5.45am, the air was cool and crisp, with the morning light giving everything the most beautiful clarity.
My first photo was taken just a kilometre from my doorstep. The jacaranda season is drawing to a close but this stunning beauty must have been a late starter.
