….has turned various shades of yellow, gold and orange. We drove round the local lanes yesterday photographing all the beautiful colours that were around us. As each day goes by the colours are deepening and the problem is, do we wait a bit longer and risk all the leaves coming down in a gale overnight, or photograph them now while they are still on the trees?
Prickly Pear Blossom Park
A short walk enjoying the sunshine in the park
The beech trees seem to have the best colour
While we were walking, the bird song was as if it was spring.
The trees seemed to have the best colour at the edge of the wood where they were in the sun.
There is something so magical walking through ancient trees.
Even the bracken had taken on its autumn colouring.
More bracken shining in the low sunlight.
The Field Maple is one of our hedgerow trees, they turn a lovely buttery yellow.
Returning home via a circular route through the next village.
This is where my nearest shop is, the drive through here is so beautiful.
So many lovely trees, so many bits of woodland.
It was clouding over now, the sun was almost gone.
This is where all the large expensive houses are!
This road is so beautiful too in spring time too, when the leaves are such a delicate green.
Another of the places where we used to walk our dog – happy memories.
That’s it for our tour round looking for autumn tints, back home for a coffee!
