Autumn is here. The leaves are slowly changing colour to yellows, reds, oranges and purples - my favourite colours. :)
I love the Mountains at this time of the year.
It's getting cold in the morning and evening. Winter is just around the corner - where did that Summer go? I have just gotten my woolly jumpers out this week and I've been wearing my scarves (there's one on the knitting needles half way through. I'm trying to de-stash and get through my wool this autumn/winter).
I've changed the nature table to Autumn colours of yellows and oranges. Soon it will be full of treasures that the kids pick up on our walks.
I love this view from my kitchen window. Across the road is a pine forest. I've been watching the Black Cockatoos finishing up the last of this season's pine cones on the trees. These pine trees are not native to Australia - in fact they're classed as a weed and one day they will be chopped down. They're slowly regenerating the area - the pine tree needles that drop make the soil too acidic for the native bush to grow underneath. It's a bit sad in a way. Some of these trees look very old. So in the mean time, I'm enjoying the beautiful view that I have out my window.
