Melbourne turns from autumn to winter so its perfect for bamboo socks, Mulled wine and the open fire.

Just before the weather turned we took a stroll through the Melbourne Botanic gardens and discovered among other things these great autumn colours.

bbbbbbbb aaaa

And of course these tall stands of massive Bamboo.

ccccc     dddddd

We also found time for a photo shoot of our new bamboo sock colours for this season just north of Fitzroy.

eeee ffff ggg

We also  managed to make our way to Castlemaine where the recent rain has filled many of the dams only to find our bamboo socks out and about  on the farm.

These images were taken while digging holes for fruit trees in the heavy clay soil of the local area where using an auger is the only way to holes deep enough.
