Autumn Love

Autumn nature photos from a local walk I did on 29 March, all taken in the vicinity of the Colchicum (autumn crocus) field, on the edge of town near the plant nursery. The dahlias are on the ‘road’ side of the fence that contains the Colchicum field. Tapanui, West Otago, New Zealand.

Click on any photo to enlarge.

In the next photo you can see a blur of Colchicum behind the pretty dahlia flower.

Colchicum, a ‘pocket’ area from a different part of the field.

All the following photos were taken from the opposite side of the road.

The toadstool grew in the roadside verge. There’s a beautiful patch of woodland in a pastoral field on this side of the road. Sometimes cattle graze there.

    1. It’s beautiful and unexpected, most of the year the field looks like a normal farm paddock. Come autumn there’s a large, dense patch of Colchicum in the main part of the field, and various other pockets of the flowers nearer the road. The owner used to grow bulbs commercially but now they’re just ‘wild’. In photos I posted earlier this year you can actually see sheep in the field with the Colchicum! 😀
