Festival of Leaves #13

A final look at these lovely trees, which have provided me with a splash of brightness in these dull days of late autumn. And I shall take this opportunity to wish everyone a lovely festive season, celebrating whichever way you choose to and thank you for visiting my blog(s) during the year. I appreciate each and every one of your visits, likes and especially comments. Thank you.

Festival of Leaves #12

copper beech in the lane

It’s wet and it’s dull, but along the lane next to the little woodland on Lelant Downs, there is still some brightness. Though more and more of these lovely leaves are lining the edge of the lane along with oak, maple and sycamore (header).

This is the last week for celebrating the colours of autumn with the  Festival of Leaves 2019 hosted by Dawn Miller. But I have another photo for next week to finish off the autumn season.

Tree Series #27

“Yet still the unresting castles thresh
In full-grown thickness every May.
Last year is dead they seem to say,
Begin afresh, afresh, afresh!”
~Larkin.

Pennies from Heaven

When the trees get dressed in spring it is as though they have decided to go to a party! Beautiful copper leaves translucent in the sunshine. Possibly a Copper Beech tree. I’m afraid my tree ID knowledge is pretty ropey.
