Autumn Colours

October gave a party; The leaves by hundreds came – The Chestnuts, Oaks, and Maples, And leaves of every name. The Sunshine spread a carpet, And everything was grand, Miss Weather led the dancing, Professor Wind the band.
George Cooper.

Theresa at run-a-round-ranch  posted photos of spring wildflowers yesterday and as we are now in autumn/fall I decided to post some photos of our trees in all their glory.

IMG_0320 The Fern Leaf Maple is certainly changing colour and almost daily.

IMG_0321The beech forest is a perfect backdrop to the Lacy Lady Maples, but the Bloodgood Maple is looking very sad except for the new leaves sprouting.

IMG_0322The Architect used to live two sites down from where we are now and this is the drive down to that house.

IMG_0348View of both neighbour’s houses with their trees looking beautiful.

So while we are happy for our friends in the Northern Hemisphere who are enjoying the Spring, we are enjoying the Autumn/Fall here and its almost daily changes of colours to our trees.

Note – Please substitute May for October in the opening quote as we are in the Southern Hemisphere.
