Colours


 

After all the ghostly goings-on of recent posts, something more restful might be in order. One of the best places to experience autumn colour, in the UK, must be Westonbirt Arboretum.

    ooooh gorgeous. The last photo with the twiggy branches & a few orange leaves leaning towards the mass of colour of the others is stunning. I must get out to the woods….. broken camera has been replaced !

    The colours are glorious. The last photo especially resonates with me!

      Mike took the photos, so credit goes to him. The first one is his favourite, but I’m with you…

      Thanks, Sue.
      Unbelievably it hasn’t rained here for days… I suppose I shouldn’t say that. But the ground is so sodden from all that’s gone before I still can’t get out and work on it.

    How beautiful! You’ve made me want to don my walking boots and go out in search of colour, especially as today is such a grey day here:)

      Thanks, Rosie.
      Grey here too. The colour is beautiful but oh so transient. There is an acer that I can see from my study window. It was full of bronze and gold leaves yesterday. Overnight half of them fell off.

    Just wonderful. Beautiful trees in all their glory. Thank you so much. We have just as lovely colours here as in any other part of the world!!!

      It’s inspired me to start off an ‘Acer Glade’ of my own. So far, three. But they’re a bit on the small side… 🙁

    Thank you for your visit to my blog 🙂

    These Autumn scenes are just perfect. I have struggled to get some interesting photos of Autumn this year…

      Hello CherryPie, and welcome to rusty duck.
      Your blog is lovely, and a pleasure to visit.
      Yes, it has been an odd year, but Westonbirt is the place to go for real autumn colour.

    I love any and all maples. Exquisite photos!

    • Jessica October 30, 2012 at 9:33 am - Reply

      Maples are only grown ornamentally here, as at Westonbirt. I have planted a few, two of which are currently vivid red! But they’re only very small. Your autumn colour is so much better, I’m always envious! Thanks Natalie.

I'd love to hear from you..
