Autumn's 2012 New Glory

The First Day of March is Our Official Autumn
Not that nature needs to be told any particular date because it has been working towards Autumn for a few weeks now.


So just as the Northern Hemisphere steps tentatively into Spring
We in the Southern Hemisphere have started to trot into Autumn.


I ventured out today to take a few photos locally
And was not disappointed by the seasonal changes already happening.


Like the deterioration on the leaves of a glory vine above.

In contrast to the orchard below where fruit ripens and lavenders flower profusely

.

A different type of lavender below.

Fruit and Herbs Happily grow together.



Good Bye Summer and Welcome Autumn.
Hopefully we will have more beautiful days ahead. Being in a more mild climate we usually have a Glorious Autumn.
Warm sunny days and cool nights and of course the beautiful colours from natures palette.



Cheers to the Good Days!
What Ever Your Season.

  12. Well I don't know about our Autumn starting yet as I haven't seen any sign of it here yet, and you are only over the ditch so to speak. What a hoot.
    Your photos are beautiful. You wouldn't happen to know what the second lot of lavender is called would you Milli?
