The light in that second photograph is something that is only dreamt about, here in Europe, even at the zenith of the clear season. I'll confess, however, that the new-this-week blossoms in the nearby public gardens are lovely...
But wait! This weekend we bring to you ... The Return of Summer.Da na na na.

I'm with Philip on this one - the light in those photos invokes in me the strangest pulling nostalgia. After months longing for spring it seems the late flush of summer brushed with the first hint of autumn is what I'm really after - seasons in their right places...
It's true about the light: Suse is right that it's going to be a hot week, but there is a coverage of high clouds today, so it's warm, but the sky is white.
I spent the last two weeks in Gippsland, and the early autumn trees seemed very tired...no end of season blaze of glory this year I think. Melbourne seems to be having a better time of it -- unless you're an elm tree.
Apparently the colder the nights and the dryer the weather, the better the colour, and the quicker the drop! I agree about the elms: ours are looking very tired and dry now.
We've got large eucalypts dropping large branches, which they apparently do as a response to heat stress. Nervous motorists are parking their cars in the sun, nervous pedestrians not taking shelter, etc. My shed is in dire peril. I see from your Weatherpixie that you have the terrible heat in Melb as well. Gorgeous photos, but.
Yes I worry sometimes about the lemon-scented gum that stands above the tree-house...A cool change has just come blustering through, I'm glad to say, though I think the rest of the week will also be hot. Summer not giving in without a fight, then.
