I always feel people who sit on this seat are missing the view :-)

I haven't been out and about too much the last couple of weeks to capture the autumn colours, so here's a pic from last year.

Goodness, these pictures are amazing! Autumn does offer the best colors in nature smile In this part of the world it's Spring now, and even though I've been looking forward to it, these pictures are making me want to have cooler weather. They are truly beautiful.

This is a very old photo that I posted here years ago (hence the small size) but it is the only obvious "autumn" photo that I have. Our native trees are evergreen so we don't get much in the way of autumn colour, except from imported trees which tend to be in private gardens rather than out in public. I tried to resize this in Photobucket but it wouldn't work.

No chance of going out and taking an autumn photo this week as it is spring/summer here!

What a difference a week makes, the weather has turned colder and wetter, the wind gotten stronger, and the evenings darker. The autumn colour is still there but now has to be viewed with a winter hat on.



This was taken today in the late afternoon.

Holly berries; traditionally a heavy crop indicates a hard winter ahead - but they also provide a good larder for many birds, and their leaves provide shelter from severe weather!

Maybe because it is "Autumn" they decided to leaf it for a few more days

Szabs: absolutely beautiful - took my breath away.

SOTHC: lol good one

Perhaps the picture I took this morning will "precipitate" a theme change ...



Autumn Schmautum lol

Ok I am so sorry . I suppose 16 days of Autumn as opposed to 14 is a bit extreme.
A new theme today then.I will close this one now.
