Title: Autumn Colours
Post by: Nemesis on September 21, 2009, 07:54:14 PM
With the early onset of Autumn - at least in the southern part of the UK - has anyone been to any arboretums yet?  I think I'll have to try a run to Westonbirt before mid-October.

Went to Westonbirt Arboretum yesterday - it was packed.  The acers and maples have plenty of colour, but the native species should have another couple of weeks of colour change yet.
