The autumn colours will soon be over.


I started blogging in an effort to keep the old brain cells alive. I'm writing a fantasy series, I take more MOOCs than I can handle, and am trying to get my Nikon D3000 off auto. I live in Victoria, Australia, with my husband and our dog, Vika.

    1. Ha ha, Kayti, we never rake leaves! and these ones are outside our yard. I do clean the leaves from the roof once a year and from around the doorways. The rest get chopped up when the lawn mower goes over them. 😀


  1. You guys down there at least get a proper autumn: up here I see nothing but London planes hanging on to their bright brown leaves – not beautiful at ALL.


    1. The colours have been exceptional this year. Or maybe it’s only because I’m noticing. I’ve been lazy, I meant to do a ‘photo shoot’ at our Valley of The Liquidambers for the blog.

      And I’ll have to change the wording of the heading since it is actually winter, by the calendar. I’m surprised you didn’t point that out, M-R. 🙂


  2. I agree with the others: Beautiful photo! The blend of the old and the new is astonishing! ❤ ❤ ❤ IT!


    1. I should point out that the green leaves belong to another taller tree (eucalypt) mingling a bit. Thanks for the love Angela. 🙂
      oh shit, what am I saying … of course I see them now … the leaves on the elm that have not yet turned. It is an excellent contrast. 😀


  3. The golden leaves look gorgeous, shame the tree ends up looking like a stick. In Adelaide someone made the decision to line the road from the airport into the city with Plane trees (I think), feel sorry for the locals who have to sweep them out of the gutters and stare at the bare branches for months. Don’t know why they couldn’t chose local plants, nice change for visitors.


    1. They do this everywhere Sue. Woodend has old oaks and the streets were thick with leaves the last time we were there – masses of them. The councils are happy to plant them but don’t want to send out the street sweeper truck too often! 😀


Tell me what you're thinking.
