Autumn




The scarlet oak is in all its glory, and the dawn redwoods and liquid ambers were looking wonderful when I took a painting break and walked around the park today.  Autumn colours are not usually very spectacular in the Bay of Plenty, as it's so warm, but this year seems to be a good one.  Yesterday it got up to 30ºC on the front verandah, but down to 5ºC last night.  I see from wiki Tauranga that the average low for May is about 8ºC, so that might explain the brighter-than-usual colours this year.
