Canberra is always spectacular in autumn – a blaze of burnt oranges, golds and ambers with splashes of scarlet across the whole city- but this year was more spectacular than most.
Milder temperatures and lack of hard rain meant the leaves changed hue while still clinging to the limbs that bred them. They hung on, and on, and on.
Then suddenly it was over and within days the frost reminded what winter would bring.
Autumn, you were a delight, and I was sad to see you go.
