Autumn is here once again. My favourite time of year. Warmish days, cooler nights, beautiful imagery.  The flowers, the changing tree colours, beautiful sunrises and sunsets, lovely scenery all round. It really is a picturesque place to live and I love it here in the Dandenong Ranges.

We have autumn flowers coming out now and our roses are flowering again, as are our strawberries. Another round before winter sets in.

Cosmos – my grandmother used to grow these in her garden and I loved seeing them there.


Dahlias. I have grown to love these flowers. There are quite a variety. Love the dark leaves too.


We have a gigantic weeping oak in our garden.  I would say probably a good 45-50 feet tall, maybe taller. Certainly towers above the houses in our area. It’s just beginning to change colour.
