Natural Beauty: Autumn Colours

Autumn colours

 

It is coming into Autumn in Australia. Living in Brisbane, Australia is such a wonderful lifestyle.  The weather is good with sunshine year round and the winters are mild.  However, I sometimes would love to live in a place where the seasons are more defined.

I do love Autumn in Brisbane because there is a feeling of ‘softness’ and freshness after the heat of summer.  The  mornings and evenings are deliciously crisp and cool with gorgeous blue sky,  It certainly makes running easier and cooler and life in general just that little more pleasant.

I absolutely adore the autumnal colours as the leaves on the trees change colour.  We don’t have many of those in Brisbane so you don’t really experience the gorgeous colours of orange, russet and gold as leaves change and fall.

I’ve visited the North America several times and always during the Autumn – or ‘Fall’ as my U.S. friends like to call it. I have indulged my passion for the ‘Fall’ colours.  In fact’, there are tours showcasing the beauty of ‘Fall’ which I would recommend.

So I’d like to share some of my photos of Brisbane in Autumn and contrast them with the gorgeous changing of the seasons on my visits to Washington, New York and Prince Edward Island – famous for being the home of  ‘Anne of Green Gables’.

    I’m in California and I love the autumn! The colours are much more vibrant than I’ve seen in Sydney. And running through the crunchy leaves is pretty great too!

    I’m in Melbourne and there’s usually lots of reds, browns and yellow hues from the beautiful leaves. It’s a lovely time of year.

      I must visit Leanne as it would be cheaper than another flight to the U.S. I have a cousin and friend who live in Canberra and they also love the colours. Glorious really is the word isn’t it? Have a great week!

    You are right about not much contrast in the season on the coast and up north. It will soon be no daylight saving here in NSW and it will be dark at 6pm. That was a great show of the differences between your Aussie Autumn and a US Fall. The closest I have been to the Autumnal colours are on visits to Canberra. Colours in some leaves are amazing. I did find a place inland from here last year where there were a few Autumn trees so i go my fix in a small way. Thanks for linking up for #lifethisweek 12/52. Next week: 3 Month Review 2017.

      I know Denyse and I just loved the ‘fall’ colours in the U.S. I must visit Canberra as I believe their colours are glorious too. I feel they are very uplifting when I see the colours of autumn. Thanks for the opportunity to link up. Don’t forget to link up with us at #OvertheMoon you are most welcome and I’d love to see you there.

    I’m just happy that those boiling hot days are almost behind us for another year Sue. The cooler evenings make for much nicer sleeping conditions. I also liked the Anne of Green Gables reference – I’m reading my way through the books on my Kindle Reader atm and loving the beauty and simplicity of her life on Prince Edward Island.

      It is a lovely area where Anne of Green Gables is set, Leanne. I did the tour (although Mike stayed on the cruise ship) and so glad I did. It was lovely to remember her books and I actually bought some from the shop for the girls in our family. I came back and re-read the books and could visualise so much better because I had been there. You are right about the hot weather!!! Bring on winter I say. x

    Autumn is really beautiful in the Northeastern US. I spent most of my life in that part of the world and have always savored that time of year (which, yes, we do call fall).

      It is a glorious time of year and I should be grateful that where I live, like you our winters are mild. I’ll just have to take some more vacations to see the Fall colours. Thanks for stopping by and have a beautiful day.

      Hi Linda! Thanks for stopping by to say hello. I love the seasons in the UK – so defined and I enjoy watching British television shows that are set in your gorgeous countryside. Have a beautiful day my friend and hope you are feeling better. xx
