One thing you miss when you live in the tropics is the seasonal change of foliage. Our eucalypts are beautiful, but they and most of our other trees are not deciduous. We just don’t have the cold nights needed for the colourful displays that people in more temperate zones enjoy.
So, one of the visual treats I appreciated in my recent trip back to Canada was sights such as this. What a contrast between the fire of the leaves, and the green background.
Oh, and speaking of trees, I have put up my Christmas tree, the one I brought all the way home from Venice.
