The grass is green and things are looking lush! More like spring than the typical autumn images that come to mind. But I suppose we think of the autumn colours that are really more typical of the northern hemisphere and now I am seeing the wonderful greens of autumn in Melbourne.
I took Penny to Warrningal Park recently and was quite amazed to see a tree that looked to have been dying, covered in leaves.
Here it is in December 2014.
That bare white trunk and sawn up branches didn't look very hopeful. I did wonder why they hadn't just chopped it all down.
Now I know why!
The grass is green and the bare trunk is covered in leaves! It seems that those council arborists do know what they are doing.
