    What a magnificent place and wonderful photos…..I am sitting in amongst grey iron bark and blue skies in Australlia as the temperature climbs. Your diverse autumn colours are a huge contrast to our grey’s muted greens and vibrant blue.

      I would love to visit your country/continent. My grandson went to school in Sydney for three months last winter and really liked it.

    Your photos made me homesick for Ohio, even though I never lived there. I read Malabar Farm in 1988 and was so taken by Bromfield,s word pictures of Ohio that I set a goal to make it to Malabar Farm State park. In June of 1997 I drove from Oregon to Ohio, and found that Ohio was more beautiful than I expected. What really surprised me was how rural it was. Westerns tend to think that everything west of the Mississippi is paved over. I love your Chickadee and Deer photos. The colors are so Autumnal and warm. Just last week I was thinking how I would like to go back to Ohio in the Fall and roam through the woods and fields and see the changing colors. I’ll certainly be back here to see your new posts.

      Well, you’ve missed the fall color for this year. Recent winds have left the trees pretty bare. Maybe you can put a return visit on your “bucket list” for future years. Ohio is a beautiful state and most of it is rural. We live in the northeast, east of Cleveland, so we have plenty of hills and lots of wonderful parks.
