    The cooler Autumn weather means I can get out in the garden to tidy up after the heat of Summer. I like to plant trees, hedges and veggies whilst the soil is still warm, so plants a good start before winter and Autumn is a great time to plan and plant out a Spring bulb garden, there's always room for one more bulb!

    Seeing some fantastic films in the French Film Festival - one of the highlights of my year! Right now we are renovating our kitchen, so specifically for this autumn, I'm looking forward to it being completed.

    I love the autumn colours. The colours of the leaves inspire the perfect pallet to mirror inside the house and in your wardrobe!

    Planting fruit trees and lots of daffodils- more the merrier!

    Growing plants and bulbs successfully on my balcony when told it was impossible! Loving gardenias, magnolia, roses, and bulbs galore!!

    My favourite thing about autumn is that l can still enjoy gardening, planting bulbs for exquisite bursts of colour and raking all the leaves!

    The best thing about autumn in Melbourne is the weather, cool nights & warm days. The sting has gone out of the sun, it is softer & kisses the garden gently. The soil is still warm so is perfect for new planting of veggies & spring blooms. The cool nights colour the trees golden yellow, red, burgundy & orange. Leaves carpet the ground... my favorite time of year.

    I love the colour that comes with Autumn and the amazing photos you can take when the kids are playing outside.

    Sunny blue days and cool crisp nights. Finally getting get to pull a few things out of the winter wardrobe.

    My favourite thing about Autumn is the change in season. A great time to plant the new fruit trees and watch the frost take over to get a great crop of apricot and berries come summer! The garden changes so much in Autumn, due to the warm and cold days and it is beautiful to watch the plants constantly adjusting

    Autumn is all about seeing my tulips and calla lilies go to sleep after their beautiful spring display. It is also about switching the wardrobe into warmer clothes - scarves finally!!

    Love Melbourne's Autumn... the colours in the trees, picnics in the park with warm coats and great friends, excited kids throwing autumn leaves :D

    Melbourne in Autumn is the pinnacle of beauty with so much to see and do in glorious weather!

  • 6 years ago

    The beautiful autumn colour is my favorite thing about that time of year. Every day my garden changes as the leaves turn and fall leaving an amazing carpet on my drive. After raking them up and mulching them they then become valuable mulch for my garden. I also love the cooler weather and relief rom the summer heat.

    Living in Brisbane it’s hard to identify autumn but on the few days it appears or that I can get to a more southerly clime, I love the changing colours of poplars and the crunch of leaves on the ground as you wander through a beautiful garden.

    seeing how my new garden changes with the seasons

  • 6 years ago

    I have this tree outside my house which is currently green, but when Autumn comes, the leaves go a beautiful Princeton Orange colour. It's also about this time where my Roses around my house start to be pruned, and they come out with hundreds and hundreds of them by Summer, it truly is special, but I have to admit, my favourite season is Summer... lol

    Autumn means I can celebrate the Autumn Solstice, unpack our woven wool rugs for the lounge room, start cooking curries, collect autumn leaves for the chook run, plant purple podded peas & Scarlett Cambridge broad beans and begin wearing my handmade woolly scarves!

    Going for a drive to the nearby Alpine towns and admiring the avenues of trees and there changing colours.

    I love
    Melbourne in Autumn, a change to crisp cool weather, and watching leaves become all shades of gold, orange and garnet. Perfect weather for tucking into Sticky Date pudding with
    Butterscotch sauce!

    Taking my son out in his gum boots to walk through the leaves. Strolling in the cool with my new baby girl. Hubby and I enjoying a drink on our deck or bedroom balcony in the cool evenings.

    While the weather is still warm, not too hot, it is a great time of year to enjoy dinner on the deck over looking at our garden.

    I love autumn because the days are still sunkissed, but the evenings draw in earlier.... giving us time as a family to hop under the giant black mink blanket with a movie.

    For me, autumn brings a welcome reprieve from the heat plus some cosy rainy days. This season we will be moving into our new house so there will be many things on our autumn task list!
  • 6 years ago
    I’m looking forward to spending time in the garden planting and trimming. Some rain will be welcomed and some sunny days to promote the growth . Love the post picture.. Nature is amazing.

    Autumn welcomes new beginnings and diversity of designs & styling.

    Autumn is my favourite season, the cooler temperatures and sunny clear days make great gardening weather plus the soil is still warm enough to get plants established before next summer. I'm looking forward to weekends spent establishing a new garden plus enjoying the autumn colours.

    The Melbourne International Garden Show! Magnificent setting with established trees in autumn colour, buying new bulbs and seedlings, being inspired to try something different. Great information, stunning floral arrangements, ideas for more sustainable projects, The MIGS is a fabulous day out.

    I love Autumn for it's dramatic change of colour more than any other season here in Tassie. I only wish I had the room to plant all the deciduous trees in my garden to have that contrast of red, gold, green and yellow.

    The consistent and comfortable weather that allows for lots of outdoor entertaining, and lots of meals outdoors before the cool winter arrives

    The cooler weather, the foliage colours and flowers and my birthday all make Autumn my favourite season.

    I love the cooler weather which is perfect for gardening. I'm always on the hunt for rare and unusual bulbs which get planted out in Autum. Deliciduous trees that turn gorgeous colours before leaf fall is always a sight to behold too!

    My favourite thing about autumn?

    There is not just one thing - i love the days that are still warm but the chill that comes in the evening; the colours of the trees as they turn; bringing out the quilts and blankets; cozy time on the couch......
