Mountain Beauty

I so enjoyed our taste of cool autumn weather the last few days. Even here in Sydney when we arrived home it seems more like autumn and less like summer.

Mt Solitary (aka The Sleeping Giant)

I always love going to the Blue Mountains. The scenery is breathtaking, the houses lovely and I think most of all I love the trees. Because of the cool climate a lot of Northern Hemisphere plants thrive here, and the autumn colours are so much more brilliant than in Sydney.

We enjoyed a mix of bush and exotic trees in gardens.

A stunning Japanese Maple in the garden of the house we rented.

Govett's Leap

We did lots of walking and there was lots of fun to be had everywhere we went - so many children doing amusing things...
