When in doubt.. wear red!



I'm sure I've used that title before! Believe it or not.. would I fib :) I snapped these only a few hours after yesterday's misty morning shots. Arriving home the sky was clear blue, photo untouched, and the Chinese Tallow tree in my front garden was blushing shamelessly! Could it be that the tree I've been searching for has been here under my nez all along! Apparently the Chinese Tallow is considered a pest in some parts of the world, I really can't imagine why, it's a delightful, deciduous tree and quite popular here. I love having deciduous trees in the garden, sometimes it's the only way to tell it actually is winter in Perth's moderate climate :) Hope you have a wonderful weekend, take care and stay safe...

  2. I don't know this tree, but suddenly I'm in love! Yes! It is gorgeous and you probably need several in your garden. Certainly wouldn't want you wandering around lost in between seasons! :)

  17. Winter over here looks different, Grace, much sadder, that´s rather autumn - something I´m not really looking forward to yet, but I have to admit it does look beautiful! :-)

  20. Beautiful tree Grace. That's true that here we can hardly tell if it's Autumn or winter as most trees don't drop their leaves....
