I have just come in from raking the leaves – something I’ve been meaning to do for some time. They’ve been piling up on the gravel paths and if I leave them too long they will merge with the gravel. I love raking leaves – which is fortunate as we have several large elm trees that create plenty of raking opportunities! I love autumn in Melbourne – the coloured leaves and cold sunny days. I love it when the wind blows and the leaves rain down from the trees like a brilliantly coloured snowstorm. Beautiful.
