Last days of autumn..



We zipped into the city yesterday for something specific only to find the 'something specific' shop still closed. Like many cities around the world Perth feels a little bit sad and deserted right now which is a shame because it is looking particularly pretty in its autumn colours. The views here looking up and down through the canopy of trees on Murray Street are lovely as the trees change colour. Although there is a lot of rain about it isn't all that cold.. between 19 and 22C during the coming week. Not sure if I mentioned that my newly planted tree did survive the storm but is now totally leafless, it is a deciduous tree so they were on the way out anyway :) Happy Friday, take care and stay extra safe 🍂

  2. One thing I really want to see about Autumn is how the leaves turn to different colors! Hopefully someday :)

  3. Here I am staring at these lovely photos and wishing I walking in that spot right now. Instead I'm faced with 40c temperature today and 44c tomorrow. Yikes.

  7. The second one looks calming.
    The rain and a quiet walk. What else does one need?

    I like watching the contrasting season to what we have here, just entering summer. We are getting rain also.

  9. Finally ... we have almost the same day temperature! LOL
    It doesn't rain here and it is necessary! Weekend gets even warmer!
    Too bad you don't get an "Indian summer" ... most of the leaves are gone by the storm ... right?
    I wish you a nice Friday, don't forget to take with you the umbrella! ☂ LOL

  11. I'm loving the Autumn temps at the moment, we are probably a bit cooler than Perth, similar to Melbourne I'd say.

  12. Next week we will go into the city for the first time after about three months. It may be a sad experience.

  13. Grace!!! Can I come over now? No rain since weeks and weeks, 12C. Help!
    I start "hating" to see the sun being there, not warming us and everything goes dry.

  16. It seems we have switched our countries. Here all sunshine, but a bit lack of rain as nature is becoming a rather to dry here.

  17. Autumn seems to encapsulate so many stages of life.

  18. We had some rain last night, but not much.

  19. The city street trees and rain just add to the desolation, even when they are in autumn leaf.
