My place in the world is Tasmania and it looks spectacular now, in autumn.

These trees on the bank of the River Derwent at Bushy Park show their autumn glow, even on a grey day.IMG_4400IMG_4396

A unique deciduous beech tree, “fagus” (nothofagus gunnii) changes colour at this time of year. The trees grow to about two meters. The leaves are the size of my thumb nail. We visited the “fagus festival” at Mount Field National Park a couple of weeks ago.IMG_4652IMG_4651IMG_4486IMG_4458

The Japanese Garden within the Royal Tasmanian Botanical Gardens in Hobart has a range of red maple trees.IMG_4372IMG_4380
