Autumn in Oamaru

"The leaves fall as if from far away" (Rilke, 'Autumn')

The old pear tree in the back yard of 56 Eden Street is as lovely in 2010 autumn colours as it was in Janet Frame's childhood. This tree is believed to have been the inspiration for the pear tree in Janet Frame's magnificent three-part novel Intensive Care.
