As many of you will already know, Ballarat is famous for its ‘gold’ discoveries (see here for a brief outline of Ballarat).  But that isn’t what I would like to show you today.  The streets here are looking spectacular at the moment with beautiful autumn colour.  It seems to me that the golden trees are “leafing” up more quickly than the deep maroons and reds.  If you would like to see some of the beauty look below at the slide show.

I took these photos while on my travels around town last week.

While thinking about the changing colours of the trees I thought I would do a bit of research (just web surfing really 🙂 ) and this SITE explained fairly simply some of the facts.

Well that is it for today,

Bye for now,
