Autumn colour

According to Westonbirton Arboretum and Glowing Embers, some of the best autumn colour this year is to be found right on my doorstep.



Our Stag's Horn Sumach and I will not argue with that.

  1. It has been glorious this year. It's to do with the sunnier weather we've been having in our area for once! X

    1. Thanks Jules. Something to do with it not being too wet in September & October? Whatever the reason, autumn colour is fabulous this year.

  2. It looks like it is glowing. I love the colours of autumn as they are sort of magical before the gloom of winter, although that can be spectacular too, in it's own way. Take care.

    1. In the afternoon light it was almost on fire, Susan. The blueberry bushes have also been magnificent but I've missed photographing them at their best.

  3. The colours have been spectacular this year - certainly helps combat the grey skies and cold air :)

  4. Very little wind meant the leaves hung around for longer. We had an afternoon taking photos in an arboretum too.

    1. Good point Sue, usually the wind and rain tear the leaves down.

    1. Lucky you getting to Galloway. Suspect we won't make it up there until next year.

  6. Well all I can say is, if our leaves were second to last vibrant yours must be visible from space.
