The deep red acer/maple leaves are spectacular this year. They add such a punch, whether still on the trees or on the ground. The day I visited Thorpe Perrow, it was very cold and very dull; the promised sunshine sadly never materialised and on some of my photos the leaves are a bit blurred by a combination of the slow shutter speed I was forced to adopt and a brisk and freezing wind! Never mind, it was enough to see the colours. Photos are a bonus.
When I prepared this post I didn't intend for it to be prophetic, but as I awoke this morning my heart sank. I thought Brexit was bad enough but, oh America, what have you done? I am truly fearful for our world.
