Autumn


Today is the first day of Autumn. It will be weeks before the garden turns on its splash of colour but there is already the odd leaf or two turning. Those eaten out chunks are not the work of some garden bug, they are hail damage.


Black Cockatoos are braying
their odd neighing call.
Why are there so many?
Am I just listening more?

Reflection:
Deuteronomy 11:13-15 (New International Version)
So if you faithfully obey the commands I am giving you today—to love the LORD your God and to serve him with all your heart and with all your soul- then I will send rain on your land in its season, both autumn and spring rains, so that you may gather in your grain, new wine and oil. I will provide grass in the fields for your cattle, and you will eat and be satisfied.

More harvest from the vege patch tomorrow.

  3. Joan Elizabeth, there's nothing special in Giba Park at the top of the cliff at Pyrmont but it provides some brilliant views of the bays, wharves and city skyline.

  4. I just love the arrival of autumn ... up here that means the end of the 'wet', the start of a long growing period in our gardens and the approach of a lovely cool winter!!
    It's such a shame though that we don't get autumn colours up here ... that's one thing I would love to see first hand!
