The autumn leaves this year turned overnight from green to yellow and deep red.  Melbourne University arborist Greg Moore commented in the Age yesterday that the growing conditions this year generated abundant sugars in the leaves and this is what contributes to the deep pigments.  "The colder it is, the more pigments you get"  
All I can say is at least the cold has been good for something.  There is quite the show in my back garden.  I decided to bring a little of the joy inside.
