Autumn in Houghton

Above is the result of a recent, brief re-visit to Houghton in the Adelaide Hills with a good friend on her birthday. We were pleased to still see some rich Autumnal colours around this pretty "hamlet" - and I couldn't resist capturing one of the local "residents"!
While the air was a little crisp in the shade, the glorious warmth of the sun could still be felt through our jackets when we returned to the Village Square.

A lovely view of the last weeks of autumn in your world as we prepare for summer's heat.

Finally the colours have brightened. I thought we would lose the leaves before they had properly turned this year.
I go through Houghton quite often when I go to Modbury to see one of my specialists. The vineyards closer to Birdwood have come alive with colour as well.

A lovely mosaic of colour you share with us today.

Heidi: thanks for visiting my blog and your kind comments. Yes, I adore travelling when the opportunity arises (+ finances permit!). Also enjoy seeing others' images from around the world when I can't get there in person. Happy snapping!

The Adelaide Hills are so pretty in autumn, must remind you a little of England. My sister lived in a couple of different townships in the Hills some years back.

I live in a place with little seasonal changes... but it does seem out-of-sorts to see these autumn colours. But they sure are gorgeous. Even the local resident fits in the fall colour-palette... :-)
