Autumn can be a lovely time of the year in Melbourne. This year it is late and we haven't been smothered in air pollution as we often are in Autumn. We had a bit of winter early, but we are firmly in the latter stages of autumn now. Almost in the middle of town are some nice deciduous trees.


  1. So how does Melbourne's autumn weather differ from Melbourne's winter? And when does Spring start?

  2. My definition of winter is when we have a week of less than 20 degrees. I think that has happened by now. I used to define spring as when I started sneezing, but I have grown out of that. I would now define it as when jacaranda trees lose their leaves or perhaps when it gets nastily windy.
