    In Scotland on the top of some hills snow is falling.
    Our trees at present are beautiful with a wide rainbow of colours, yellow orange, browns and green evergreens.

    Doesn't Australia have different seasons too? Some years are better than others for the trees to turn the bright oranges/yellows. Depends on the amount of rain, daylight, temperatures - early frost or late frost, etc. Certain kinds of trees have better colors than others - mostly around here is elm or oak trees and they are very dull brown. The maple trees are the ones that are so colorful. Some specialty trees turn brilliant red or orange.

    Australia does have fall/autumn colours here in Victoria and the high country the autumn colours are spectacular. Evergreen trees do not have fall/autumn colours but deciduous trees do. Autumn colour in the southern states of Australia is spectacular as Melbourne is renowned for its parks and gardens and beautifull trees.

    We took a trip to Port Washington, WI yesterday. The colors are the best. From golden yellow, pink, dark gold, med. red, wine, burgundy, and real dark red. Often two or three colors on one tree. When we had buyers for farm items, from all over the U.S., they always commented on the deep,strong colors we have here.

    I love the fall colors. I live in Alabama and we do have pretty colors and a few mountains in the east side of the county where I live, but I really love the New England area which I have only seen in pictures.

    Northern Michigan is nearly full color today. It is just beautiful. But if the wind keeps blowing and its raining the color will not last. It is getting colder here. 50 degrees. I am not looking forward to cold weather.
