Up in Mount Dandenong.. In Search of Autumn Colours

24 Apr

My husband loves the colors of spring and autumn. But we don’t have these seasons in Manila or Singapore. That’s why he has dreamt of going back to Japan to see the cherry blossoms with me. We have actually planned a trip around this time last year (all air tickets, train tickets, accommodations were booked) but then we had to tearfully cancel it because the trip was scheduled right after the Sendai tsunami happened.

Thankfully, we are now living in a country where there are four seasons. Melbourne weather is quite unique though from other parts of Australia, coz there are days when we actually experience all four seasons on the same day πŸ™‚

So it’s Autumn time now- that time of the year when the leaves are turning and will soon fall off, but only for certain kinds of trees. Our couple friends decided to show us around before the beautiful colours fall off or get blown away by the winds..

First stop – Kalorama Lookout :

Then had a late morning tea first –

Next stop, Sky High, which is the highest peak in the Dandenong Ranges. Since it was foggy that day, we didn’t get a chance to look down the mountains but were treated to a nice ‘high above the clouds in the sky’ experience :

Then finally, we got to see nice colours in the National Rhododendron Gardens :

Thanks Connie and Jurie for a lovely day of appreciating God’s colorful creation πŸ™‚
