Garden number 3 is our bush block at Clandulla, a quick drive from Kandos. Autumn in the Australian bush is much more subtle as all but a small number of our native trees are evergreen. Here at Whistlers Rest a sign of autumn is this native shrub flowering - I haven't found it's name yet.
And in the garden and the forests the gum trees shed their bark.
These are archive photos (hence the rain of which we have seen little for a couple of years). I have been too busy cleaning up the block to run around with a camera. We have mowed for the first time in two years but there has not been much grass to worry about. Many of the understory shrubs have died and there are fallen branches and bark all over the place - a fire hazard that I cannot continue to ignore so we have been making the most of the lovely autumn weather for a working bee.
