My husband and I lived in Cairns for a while, for those who don't know Australia - Cairns is very tropical and there are really only two seasons, wet and dry. Anyway, I was so homesick one Autumn, longing for the crisp air and those beautiful colours. One afternoon a package arrived from my mum. I opened it and it was full of Autumn leaves. All shapes and sizes, all the beautiful colours of Autumn right there in a box. I have never been sent anything more beautiful. I still have them.
