Red and gold-more autumn colour


Just rushed out between the showers, days of showers at the moment , to get some photos of these trees with the few minutes of sun upon them. On the whole I don’t like autumn, as far as I am concerned it is the harbinger of winter and I really hate winter, but this display of colour is bringing me round a bit for a few days at least.


‘Jacks Acer’ as you can see the ugly root doesn’ t look quite as bad as it did a a few weeks ago when I acquired this at the auction of Jack’s trees at our club. I imagine Jack must have had this some years as single trunk Beech trees take a long time to get to this stage.

Our Golden Wedding Anniversary Acer Kashima bought from Lee  Vehorevoort at Swindon Show Feb 2016 has gone through a range of colours this year and there may be just a few more days left looking like this before the gales or frosts denude it. It was leaf pruned at the begining of June by the way.
