Autum colours are better around Melbourne this year. Cold temperature and lesser rains this month of May, make the colourful foliage last longer. To see bright golden, orange and red leaves that dominate a landscape is a rarity here in Melbourne. Many trees with showy burnt red and orange hues in autumn were once brought in here from the northern part of the world. To be able to enjoy these colours you have to go to certain places where most of the deciduous trees were planted.

As for me, my family can also enjoy the colour of Fall at home. Most of our maple bonsai trees are showing canopies of red amber foliage. This year is exceptionally beautiful . I was so excited to take some photos this morning. Yes, we are really enjoying autumn this year.
