Autumn colours

We like a spot of autumn colour here in the Bush Backyard, and I don't just mean the changing leaves.

Something about the time of year draws the eye, and the mind, to the colours of autumn - berries, rosehips, drying grasses, the red tips of new grevillea shoots, sedum, rhubarb and russet apples, late bottle-brushes, rocks and tree trunks bared by the fall of leaves.

Even in the vegetable patch, the beetroot and rainbow chard are coming along nicely, as are the red oakleaf lettuces.

The frenzy of summer growth is over, but there's still plenty to do.

So best not sit about a moment longer...
