The trees turned, the leaves fell and autumn arrived, just like that.

It is stunningly beautiful here right now. A golden sun is shining through leaves of yellow and brown. The air is still and warm. The colours restore me.

A gift.

(When I finally did go looking for photos of fine specimens they were hard to come by... native Australian flora is not as a rule deciduous and the drought has caused the introduced trees to drop their leaves in a rather scrappy manner. Usually beautiful autumn trees are displaying rather poor form this year. Still beautiful colours though)

So true, the colours at the moment are gorgeous. And the sunset tonight was so beautiful. There was a tiny plane up high above the clouds and when the sun's red rays hit it Becca said it looked just like a shooting star. There's a poet inside that little girl :)

Reading this reminds me of the earth's vastness - your leaves change color while ours unfurl.

I'm glad you now have the autumn palette to restore and mellow your piece of the world.

What a gift indeed, Cecily.

I'm in need of some photos of your autumn...get that camera out, girl, and get to snapping!

Thank you, Cecily, for the autumn photos. So pretty - love the colors and the crunchy leaves. The slide effect with the kaleidoscope was cool, too.

On the other side of the globe ... I was happy to arrive home after a week away to see leaves on the trees!

Cecily, great slide show! I love seeing pictures of where you are. You should do more, it's fun for us so-far-awayers.
