One thing I miss in Australia is the glorious colour of the leaves on the trees in Autumn. Living near the coast we do have other compensations such has the beautiful Australian flowers such as the Banksias and the Grevilleas, which are
especially showy after the rains at the end of summer. We have to make a
trip into the hills of the Dandenong ranges to see the autumn deciduous
trees and it's well worth the trip.
