Thorpe Perrow Arboretum


A couple of weeks ago, as the autumn colours started to appear, I noticed that the reds this year seemed particularly vibrant. They mainly seem to be on the more ornamental trees - acers, rowans and suchlike. It encouraged me to revisit Thorpe Perrow Arboretum, which holds a vast range of native and exotic trees, with some very showy specimens. Many of our native trees were still green at the time (going brown now though) but there were some beautiful, jewel colours against the green backdrop.

I love the combination of colours below - it looks like a burning bush, ice and fire.

  2. Lovely autumn colours in the arboretum. Having started off so enthusiastically Autumn seems to be hesitating about completing the task this year. A sharp frost would do it.
