Every season of the year is wonderful in its own special way, but if I'm pressed I will always say that autumn is my favourite.
Summer often leaks into March in Canberra, but given we never really had a summer this year, only two weeks in and the first signs of autumn are already showing.
The days are still warm enough for short sleeves and bare legs, but the sun has lost its burning intensity and the nights are cool.
The roses are still flowering, but in that overblown, end of the season kind of way.
And while the city is still very green (in fact with all this rain far greener than it usually is at this time of year) the leaves are starting to turn.
It really is for me the season where Canberra looks its best. All the planning for the tree lined streets has paid off as roads become glorious shows of colour.
And it is just starting. So be prepared for many pictures of pretty leaves and me waxing lyrical about the loveliness of an autumn day when the sky is so blue it is difficult to stay inside (really difficult to stay in the office).
What is your favourite season? And does your city look its best at one particular time of the year?
