Russet ramblings

There is something satisfying about saying the word russet outloud. 

A rolling of the “rrr ; feel the vibration in your chest. 

Accentuating the “ss” sound followed by a long sexy “eht”.

For me this word encompasses the rich bounty of Autumn’s harvest.

Birds of Paradise, also known as Crane flowers is one of the most beautiful Exotic Flowers. Birds of Paradise are native to South Africa. Birds of Paradise bloom from September through May.

The flowers of the Birds of Paradise resemble a brightly colored bird in flight and so the name Birds of Paradise.

Easter time in Australia marks the end of the first month of Autumn. Happily we can enjoy these vibrant colours for another couple of months.
