Red Oak Avenue

Delighting in my new-found freedom as a retiree, I took a friend to Thorpe Perrow Arboretum during the week. I've been before and shown photos on this blog (click the label below). It's beautiful in all seasons and spectacular in autumn. Many of the leaves have already dropped and some are shrivelled after a couple of nights of hard frost, but in some ways the carpets of colour are as attractive as the leaves on the trees. The lovely avenue is called red oak avenue. Assuming these graceful trees are indeed red oaks (I wouldn't know!) these are native to North America rather than Europe.
