How many red colours can you name?
It's Autumn, goodbye heat, hello cool wind!
Next to Spring, this season is one is definitely one for Vogue.
Leaves start changing their "clothes" with spectacular fashion sense: from green to yellow to orange and red. It's extraordinary how many different shades of yellow orange, burnt orange, red, magenta (trying to remember my "Crayola" colour names) and maroon nature can offer us.

Mt. Wilson is located in the World Heritage Blue Mountains, in NSW. It is along the Bells Line of Road, approximately 2 hours from Sydney. Entry is FREE.
Last weekend, we decided to pack a picnic, our camera and some books to relax in one of the better libraries you can find - a library of wide open space surrounded by gorgeous coloured trees and fresh air.
One of the most important plants at Mount Tomah is the Wollemi Pine . We made sure we got introduced to it since this is also called "The Dinosaur Plant". It was thought to be extinct but was found deep in a canyon. The location was top secret, so much so that they would blindfold people who were brought there at first (or so the story goes). Now, they've successfully been able to propagate it and a few are sold at the shop.
