Autumn in Adelaide

Yesterday was such a beautiful Autumn day.  We worked in the garden for a bit, and I glanced up at the Glory Vine (ornamental grape) and saw the sun shining through.  I ran inside and grabbed my camera.

Last year we had a pretty poor show with this vine because of the drought, but it seems to have kicked back this year.  I can remember some years, when the sun shined on the leaves, it looked like they were on fire.

This is the view from the street.  The street trees have not turned colour yet because we have not as yet had much cold weather.  We have even had some rain, so the nature strip is GREEN!

the front garden, and the Salvias are on show
this is one of my favourite - it looks like velvet.  I pick bunches of these Salvias and put them around the house.  They look wonderful, smell great - and you can even eat them!
