As I was driving to work today I noticed that the trees are changing colour and I was reminded of how beautiful Autumn can be and what a wonderful creator we have, to have given us so much beauty in the world to enjoy!
I found some of my favourite Autumn photos.
This one was taken in April 2005 when Nicholas was only 5. That seems like such a long time ago. We had taken his bike (it used to fit in the back of the car) and drove to our soccer field where we have a path running alongside. The path was a great place for Nicholas to practice riding his bike without training wheels.
These next few photos were taken in our City's park in the centre of town. It is a beautiful park all year round. In summer the big trees provide lots of shade and it is always nice and cool in the park. In Autumn the park provides lots of fun for the young kids who love to play in the leaves!
We had these photos taken last year just before Mothers day to use as gifts for our mothers and Grandmothers.
This last photo is taken at the same time but we are in my favourite city block. I just love this block on this street because of the trees and the street's width. It is so close to the CBD and has lovely houses.
I hope you all enjoyed our colours of Autumn. What is your favourite season? I enjoy all of them for different reasons but I do not really like the cold so I find winter seems to drag on the longest!


  1. What absolutely gorgeous photos of your family Nellie!! To think I nearly missed this gorgeous post! Our trees here in armidale look like that (well actually most have nearly lost all their leaves now - happened very early this year). Hope you have a fabulous Easter weekend ~ Tina xx

  3. Autumn is my favourite season...maybe because we finally get a break from the hot Brisbane weather! Gorgeous images...thanks for sharing them! Happy Easter! Tracey xx

  4. Just gorgeous photos! I love those autumn colours. I saw this quote recently and I think you will like it too:
    Our Lord has written the promise of the resurrection, not in books alone, but in every leaf in spring-time. (*or autumn)

  6. What cool photos Nellie!
    I have always loved seeing the leaves change colour in Autumn but since we've been living in QLD we seem to be missing out. It's just not the same:o( Thanks for reminding me how awesome God's creation is.

  7. What lovely photos Nellie! Love the family shots. We're still waiting for autumn to arrive here in the West, has been pretty summery up until now but this weekend is looking like cooling down (thank goodness!!). Have a safe and happy Easter with your family x

  8. After this winter I am so ready for some color in the trees. Autumn is my favorite and I love the smell of burning leaves and bonfires! You have the cutest fam PS!

  9. Those autumn shades are so pretty. The leaves falling is such a pretty sight, and fun for family pics!

  10. Oh my, you reminded me of my absolute favorite season, Autumn. I love the colors and I use them in my home because I love them so much. Right now we are "enjoying" the season of white. We just got 8 or 9 inches of snow yesturday. I love all the seasons but autumn is my favorite.
    I love the pics of your family.

  15. Nellie-
    A beautiful, honest inspiring blog. I also adore Autumn - such a warm and creative season. Your family photos in the park, surrounded by Autumn leaves are gorgeous. I thank you for dropping into my blog, Nellie. Incidentally, Nellie is such a cute, old-fashioned and adorable name. I shall continue to follow you and hear of your daily thoughts. Reading through your blog (and I don't know the ins and outs of your previous situation) but I also was a single mum, or rather married and then separated and like you I have found a second chance at love! I am so happy for you. You sound like you are with a wonderfully supportive man. God bless, regards, Tracey at Velvetine Lily
