Hobart Botanic Gardens as the seasons turn.....

I have hardly left Cygnet since I returned from my trip to Adelaide in May. Why would I? Anyway, last Friday I went to Hobart to see my friend Erica whose birthday it was and I spent the day happily playing in the city; shopping, eating and walking in the Botanic Gardens. It was balmy weather and I so enjoyed a full day out and about.....

Hi Kate
I love the Hobart Botanic Gardens.
Love your photos.
I wish there was still a direct flight from Adelaide to Hobart.
I could meet you there for coffee.

That would be fabulous, Maggie.... if only! Last year I got a $70 flight from Adelaide - Hobart direct. Not any more; it takes all day to go via Melb. and costs 3 times as much, or more.
