In the area of Victoria that I live, Summer only has a limited time to bother us: Autumn arrives bang on the beginning of March. We had our first frost on March 2nd, which to be honest was rather early and was the talk of the town that week. However, the trees have started their glorious run.
Having grown up on the West Coast of Australia, where summer drags on for months and months at a time, where you can have a hot Easter (as in in the 30C’s), I find my (new, although we have been here 2.5 years now!!) home town delightful in it’s four defined seasons, and cooler weather.
I think this year it is this tree (on the right of the power pole) that has surprised me the most. Last Autumn, it was the first tree on the street to change it’s colour. But this year it’s lagging behind a bit!
I’m going to be making a pictorial edit of Autumn in my town over the next two months or so, taking pictures of the above locals once a week, so I can share the beautiful colour and transformation that our town’s foliage goes through.
