New Farm Park, Brisbane

In October every year, New Farm Park in Brisbane comes alive in a glorious display of purple. The avenue through the park is aligned with a canopy of Jacarandas on either side. The leaves fall to the ground and creates a carpet of purple flowers. The jacarandas only blossom for a short time and invades the beautiful park with the powerful purple. I have  always loved the display of colour in October, the sometimes dull and dreary streets come alive in with the colours of springtime and you can’t help but feel alive too. If you are ever in Brisbane make sure you visit New Farm Park, located only a few minutes away from the CBD and the Brisbane River.It is truly one of the icons of Brisbane.

The rose gardens at New Farm Park at pleasant to wander through. The fragrances of all the flowers are delightful. The gentle autumn breeze signals that winter is not too far away.

Hope you all had a wonderful weekend.

Wherever I wander, I know that my heart will always bring home.

I took a few photographs in my favourite city today.
It was an overcast day but the colours still came out quite nicely.
