I have to say, the weather wasn't kind to me in Tasmania though the sun came out the last day or two of my stay, just to taunt me. In Hobart the weather was fickle to say the least. Bright sunshine one minute followed by a rain shower. The wind was pretty blustery as well and felt like it might have been coming straight from Antarctica!

I'd brought my film camera along with me and decided it was time to shoot some black and white film. 

I parked the car in Battery Point and from Battery Point it's a short walk to Salamanca Place, the jewel in Hobart's crown. 

I dropped into The Maker to see what was on display and noticed quite a crowd outside A Common Ground. On Saturday Salamanca Place is host to the Salamanca Markets.

I arrived pretty early just as the markets were setting up. Aren't these waratahs gorgeous?

As well as the usual suspects, there was some beautiful fresh produce on display.

I wanted to take handfuls of those baby leeks home with me.

If you keep walking you'll find yourself at St. David's Garden.

I'm always struck by the beauty of the grave stones embedded in the wall.

Do you remember me mentioning Lucaston Park Orchard?

Well this gentleman is from Lucaston Park and he was selling farm fresh apples and pears that day. What a face of character.

All that photography made me hungry so I left the markets with something to tide me over before making the drive up to Launceston. The cherry danish was a tasty as it looked.

I had one more place to visit before the drive north, the Royal Tasmanian Botanical Gardens.

I live in an apartment so whenever I get the chance, I love to walk through a beautifully planned garden.

The Royal Tasmanian Botanical Gardens are such lovely peaceful gardens.

A lovely water feature.

Some black and white images for you.

The conservatory was filled with orchids the day I visited.

Fields of green.

A burst of colour for you.

If you're in need a food fix, here's my latest Delicious Bites column for decor8, a spiced pumpkin layer cake with maple cream cheese icing right in time for Thanksgiving.

I still have loads of images to share with you from my trip. Next time I'll take you along the Heritage Highway to Hadspen, my last stop in Tasmania.

See you all again,
