Autumn is a visual gift given by nature to raise the morale of human beings who are worried as they enter the dark days of winter!

I don’t have much in the way of Autumn Leaves to share from this inner western suburb of Melbourne, although I did visit a public park a couple of times in nearby suburbs back in 2017 when I was still able to use public transport and get around the area more.

I’ve been spoilt by living in streets surrounding the Royal Botanic Gardens over many years where Autumn shows her splendour in dozens of different ways from the tree-lined streets to the actual Royal Botanic Gardens.

Back in May 2013, I seem to have made dozens of images of the colour so here are a few from my archives that you may not have seen on my old nature blog (which I greatly regret closing down now).  There’s a couple of shots from May 2014 also.



    1. Red leaves certainly add to the Autumn hues. There’s a Japanese Maple on the way to the local shops which is especially pretty with its cloak of red.
      The Japanese Maple next to my balcony mainly has orange, rust-type colours.

  1. They’re all pretty. I do remember that shot down the street (alley?) from your previous blog. I liked it then, and I like it now. All of these convey a sense of autumn, beautifully.

    1. I can’t believe Autumn is nearly over and I haven’t been able to get outdoors to see much of the leaf colour this year. The trees in our housing estate landscaping do have an area where Autumn colour is especially pretty. It’s down a side road I can see from my balcony or whenever I go downstairs to catch a taxi to an appointment, so I can’t really complain.


  2. You capture the beauty of autumn perfectly, Vicki. While we are closing in on the final month of spring… and a glorious summer is ahead, I can hardly wait until the autumn to see similar colors you have here with your post. Simply a relaxing, beautiful feeling you have created here 🙂
