Life in the Neigbourhood

A big Thank You to our very innovative Host Klaus and his dynamic team: Sandy, Louise, Wren, The Fishing Guy and Sylvia.

In You may link My World Tuesday to yours.

While summer down under means scorching days, autumn is the opposite. It came bit early which was a relief. Then we had occasional rain that gave us more comfort.

Winter is here now and I have been feeling it since two weeks ago. Or is it that my body is now acclimatized to the city's weather? Since the place where I came from is a very cold place that we even get snow over there at winter time. The maximum temperature there is even lower than the city's maximum temperature.

Here are some of the natural scenario occurring in the neighbourhood at this time of the year. Messy and nobody cares. Not when storm winds keep bugging and the rain makes the ground soggy. And not when am out to visit my family most of the time.

Pictures were taken just this morning: dismal, cold and raining.

Leafy carpet of the front walkway.

As you can see, leaves of this tree are changing colours, then they fall until the tree becomes bare.

A walkway to the carpark. The garden has been temporarily neglected.

Restored green backyard lawn from the dry summer. Sweet potatoes still thriving.

The back tree is also undergoing colour change except the mandarin behind. That's the little corner of My World.
