Autumn woods


Closer to home, the colour isn't quite as spectacular in Hirst Woods as it is at Thorpe Perrow. Those vibrant red maples that add so much punch to the mixture are absent from the native woodland, which is mainly oak, beech and birch. It's still looking very attractive this year. I was struck by the difference in the shapes of the straight trunks and then that wonderfully dark and twisty tree just behind. Isn't nature wonderful?

  2. So pretty Jenny, apart from the colours which are beautiful in autumn I also love the carpet they create as they fall.

  3. It's been a very English autumn with trees all turning at their own pace under grey skies. Subtle and strange.

  4. Beautiful. We've had the same kind of autumn colours here in Sweden through October but with November came more rain and strong winds, so not all that many leaves left on the trees now.
