    Water off hibiscus' back.

    Thanks Nora. Was building to a post, but so far only had these three, so glad you got there first. ;-)

    My camera is tied up in my daughter’s science fair for the next few months, so I’ll be picking through the archive

    Thanks Jackson, we are off and running now ... let's see what Autumn actually looks like!

    That's sort of suitable for Autumn... picking through harvest from previous seasons : )

  • Jos,

    Should they perhaps be new photos taken as from now, trolling through old stuff seems a bit pointless IMO.

  • JacksonP,

    Rather not start getting restrictive.

    I'm glad to have people contributing whatever they like really. Something old, something new, avoid the borrowed, but bring the blues.

    I might go trolling myself. ;-)

    Digging around, here is one from Autumn 2010 I don’t think I have posted here

    Amalgamation of themes.

    Blue sky, red leaves, memory of summer sun?

    Mighty warm here in Aucks today.

    Ok, I'm stretching it a little.

    Loving the mellowness: must check out the plane trees of Wenderholm.

    Sitting on my doorstep 10 days ago, Saturday morning (with Kim Hill and Anne Ruefle: Poetry and Life as it happened).

    Today's autumnal update, mid-afternoon hint of soft sun through thinning cloud.

    Very dramatic! In fact looks like the sky tower is ready for lift off.

    Sitting on my doorstep

    Wonderful doorstep view, and the air looks so clear down there. Is the whole hillside going to change colour in the coming weeks?

    I have to admit, that unlike the red tree in your picture, the lovely russet trees in my traffic cone picture (in this post) are actually very sad rimu which have turned russetty red through lack of water this summer. Hope they are sturdy enough to green up again.

    Half those trees are evergreen, and the deciduous ones are all out of synch in their timings, no overall change in the spectacle?

    Yes Gisborne air often has beautiful clarity with sharp colours, definitely much clearer on average than Auckland's, but we have all sorts. And Auckland too has good clarity some days - here's one from Cockle Bay near the family home of my youth, meeting the clarity test of the side-ridges of Moehau being visible in the afternoon*. This echoing Cecelia's photo from Whangaparaoa to Little Barrier - perhaps a quintessential Auckland view?
    Like Simon Bennet's above, made by the Norfolk pine :-)

    *Doubtful perhaps in the photo, but I seen it!

    The fig tree is starting to get autumnal as yesterday’s early sun finds its way through the dancing gaps in the alder foliage beyond.

    Then this morning –

    And lo! the fig-leaf of the east has caught
    The sun’s delight in a golden glove.

    Look what the wind blew in!
    Yellow leaves and an orange cat.

    And this year’s walnut hoard (so far)! About a quarter of the tree’s bounty falls on us, the remainder on our neighbours’.
