Autumn Beech leaves on the cascading lower branches of one of the huge Copper Beech trees on the south side of Greenwood House. The small round holes in the leaves where the light shines through are the places where galls made by minute insects have fallen away once the larvae have emerged.

Autumn Leaves – London Plane

We can’t fail to note the progress of autumn as we exit the Greenwood House car park or walk up to the village shop. The leaves on the London Planes outside Herrison Hall, and up the slope where we duck the low branches, are fast changing colour and falling.

Autumn Leaves – Brambles

Small and ordinary can be beautiful and delight the eye. I have been watching the Bramble leaves turning red in this early autmn as the berries are in various stages of ripening.
