AUTUMN in the Southern Highlands

Beautifully dressed in Autumn colours - the Potting Shed at Two Gates Farm

I really love Autumn and always look forward to the soft, glowing days, crisp cool nights and pretty leaf colours flurrying past and lying scattered on the green lawns.  But this year at South Acres, Autumn has rather been missing in action, the result of all the rain we've had of late.  Happily, however, when visiting a couple of gardens over the weekend, in Mittagong - a half-hour's drive from here,  I was lucky enough to take some photos of lovely Autumn colour.
The Highlands has a reputation of showing off beautifully in the Autumn.  There are many European trees planted throughout the Highlands in and around the towns of  Mittagong, Bowral, Berrima, Robertson, Burrawang  and Moss Vale.
