Autumn Colours
« 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.

Was thinking of going up to Richmond Park soon, rutting season for the deer right now, trees turning golden, nice lighting...busy Saturday, Sunday is a possibility but may be going over some friends, so possibly next weekend..

I might have to give this Sunday a try.
Rutting deers, leaves turning golden.

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.
