Shades of Autumn/Fall Rubies in my garden

I would like to say that Autumn/Fall is a time of year I enjoy, but it isn't. I love Spring and Summer, tolerate Autumn and dislike Winter. But regardless we are leaving warm weather behind in Melbourne. The days are still balmy, sunny and the sky is blue, but it won't last. The consolation for me is the wonderful array of colors at this time of year.

My tiny garden has not disappointed me and my Ruby Tuesday photos are of flowers and leaves that are the last vestiges of life to be found outside here. Won't be too long and everything will look gray, dull and lifeless.

This time of year always leaves me wondering if I made the most of the warm weather.
I think my camera and I did, I have lots of photos stored on way to remind me Spring will come again.

Have a great Ruby Tuesday! :)

  1. Spring and fall are my two favorite seasons. You have captured the fall very nicely. thanks for sharing.

  2. Lovely photos, and lovely rich colors, but I have to admit that I feel the same way about fall and winter as you do.

  3. The colors are beautiful, but I preferred the view without the close ups of the bugs. Just being a girly girl, don't like the little critters. Much prefer the pretty colors and shapes of the flowers.
    Very good example of a Ruby Tuesday. E
