Photo of the day: Salamanca Market

Have you noticed the seasons are a’changin’?

The slight nip in the air at night, sneezes that rock you to the core – those hot summer days are just a figment of memory and autumn is here in all its glory.

Early autumn reminds me of a beautiful weekend I had in Tasmania last year. Here is a snap from The Salamanca Market in downtown Hobart.

Look at the colours of these vegies. How vibrant!

When I move to Tassie with one of my great pals, let’s call her the Tassie-Lover, we will go to the market most Saturdays, I think. She will buy some of those Chinese greens up the back and they will rot in her fridge. I will opt for a generous bunch of purple carrots and they probably will not even last the short stroll to my grand house over the Derwent.

The weather will be fresh and delightful, with sunny days and brisk nights. We’ll look at art and, honestly, we probably won’t work much.

Perhaps the Tassie-Lover will paint. We will both drink coffee.

Ah, how nice is it to dream, especially in early autumn.

  1. Hi LP,
    Even I would not take a photograph of vegetables!
    Only YOU would do that.
    Still I must admit that I have not seen purple carrots beofre

    1. “I will just make a little stir-fry for you guys, because you probably did find many vegies in Egypt,” I tell you, excitedly.
      “Well you can make a stir-fry, but I am not sure who’s going to eat it,” you tell me, equally as excited to be skipping out on vegies.
      Oh, how I love vegies!!

  2. You: Packing your already ridiculously healthy, rabbit style lunch.
    Opens oven door to find last nights baked eggplant remnants.
    Is actually excited by the prospect and adds slimy purple things to lunch.
    Me: Still full of pizza and burping beer bubbles.

    1. Oh dear I still can’t believe my luck that you didn’t want any of the eggplant!!
      And the look on your face when I told you that, no, we didn’t have a cute egg cup with chicken legs, but a shot glass. Priceless 🙂

Have your say? Go on...
