Autumn in the mountains

Shots from Mother’s Day lunch in the Lower Blue Mountains. Below are close-ups of part of the view from their back verandah.

The cold snap the last week and the mellower weather since has not only produced the most vivid red and claret leaves seen for quite a few years, but also confused a few of the spring-flowering plants.



The sun wasn’t out, but I quite like the light effect on certain plants when it’s overcast, especially lavender.


And of course, we gave Mum some other flowers to brighten up inside the house as well.

  1. Stunning colours. And I love that pale grevillea, too.

  2. I’m a fan of the pale grevilleas as well. They give a very elegant quality to a shrubbery, and they seem to be particularly attractive to the smaller nectar/pollen-eating birds.

  3. Lovely pics. Miss the blue mountains. I grew up at their base in NW Sydney.
