Photographer's Note

This was taken in the final week of Autumn in Melbourne with Winter approaching, but the colourful leaves of this young Plane Tree are yet to fall.

I learned from Santo through one of the posting by John Plumb that this should not be mistaken for a maple tree, since the shape of the leaves and colours are pretty similar. Having one of this tree in the backyard would be really pleasant during Autumn. Beside the colours, the seeds will attract numerous Rosellas towards the beginning of Winter. But reaping the benefits is not without hard work. The round spiky seeds will rain down by the hundreds and would require daily sweeping, depending on the size of the tree.

Thanks for viewing.
