Driving to town today to visit my husband, I thought I would
show you the main street through Verdun, a small settlement
on my way.
Dense clouds and rain in the distance muted the autumn colours.
My 20 year old car is in the left hand corner of the shot.
The sun was doing it's best to break through
and finally did, to brighten the drenched colourful leaves
I am infinitely grateful for the rain.
Tips of trees over a hedge made a good contrast to the dark sky.
From our last trip together, this time last year,
Martindale Hall near Mintaro
which was the school for the film 'Picnic at Hanging Rock'.
Rather a grand pile in this sleepy rural district
it is sad no longer to have anyone to share trips, memories and old age with.
We never know what life will dish up,
we just hope we cope with whatever comes our way.
