We live in New Zealand's only sub-tropical zone, with warm humid summers and mild winters. Our winter daytime temperatures range from 12 to 17 degrees celsius (53 - 62 F) so it never gets really cold (although we do get the occasional frost here, more than in most other places in the north). And we don't have many deciduous trees and autumn colours. This one is close to my house and looks so good, I think, because of the contrast to the winter colour of the mountain.
I found a couple of photos I took exactly six months ago which are typical of our colours of early summer.
Vibrant new growth and bold colours
I'll be visiting the Friday My Town Shoot Out participants over the next few days as and when child visitor time allows. You can find them here.
