Life in Tasmania's Huon Valley, by a blow-in from the mainland
Tuesday, May 14, 2013
We've had some warm days this week, but daylight saving is well behind us for another year and darkness falls earlier every day. A different collection of birds is visiting: robins, firetails, fairy wrens, lorikeets. We look down on thick morning fogs in the valley and the first frosts appear. Clear, fresh sunny days and days of misty rain. Fungi everywhere. I think Autumn is my favourite time of year in the valley.
Escaped Sydney in 2010 for a piece of paradise in Tasmania's Huon Valley. I'm a keen walker, remote worker, incompetent gardener, Bernese Mountain Dog owner, fan of almost anything German (food, language, cars, beer), amateur linguist, chook fancier, childfree.
