However, this year, the weather conditions have been perfect for our very own spectacular show of Autumn leaves and with a little luck they will still be here for a few more days.
These trees are in my local park, which is less than a mile away. They may be less intense than their counterparts in New England, but I was content. And think of the carbon footprint I saved!
If I did not have to fight with the couch grass on the allotment today, I could have gone on a little jaunt to Westonbirt Arbouretum which is only a few miles away. Not to worry, sometimes you have to get things prioritised and the couch grass is as we speak, sending out roots which will plague me all next season if not halted now.
