November trees in my garden

20 comments


A gardening ‘expert’ was quoted in a newspaper today, saying “the autumn leaves haven’t amounted to much this year” and I thought “whaaaaaat?!” I don’t know where he lives, and I realise that many trees are hanging on to their greenery, perhaps because the ground is so wet, but still! My OH and I have seen some MAGNIFICENT autumn leaf colour in our area in the last few weeks but rarely have the camera with us. So I thought I would just take a stroll around our garden in the sun, take a few of my usual not-very-good snaps, and see what you think?!

This Acer was pale green last week, now a glowing gold; feathery leaves, sorry no idea of the variety.

Prunus Hai-Taku (Great white cherry)

Silver birch (Betula utilis jacquemontii)

Acer griseum (peeling bark maple)

Viburnum opulus

Well, to have sunshine like today cheers me up, so I’m hoping you’ve had the same where you are :))

I agree with you, there are some wonderful colours still around to be seen. Having just got back from 2 weeks away, I was pleased to see so many trees still giving glorious displays.

It has been a perfect day today Sheila and your garden looks just beautiful, I simply love this time of year with sunny days and crispy nights! The colours are out of this world aren't they? I love the liquid amber.

You've some stunning colour in your garden Sheila and up here in the northeast, the trees are looking fabulous especially the birches and beeches. My little prunus "snow showers" is a picture at the moment, really going out in a blaze of glory......:))

I agree that person is looking in the wrong place or going around with his eyes closed, I am a carer/ escort for our local taxi firm and three days a week I get a drive mornings and afternoons into the countryside in Rutland, the trees around where we go are absolutely fabulous with their colours this year, its a delight to see them and even the lads we take remark on them....
Lovely pics Sheila...

So envious Sheila. Its all beautiful Our viburnum opulus hasn't coloured at all - miserable thing. The only good autumn colour here had been the red stemmed dogwood - but at least that will last us all winter.

Oh Stera, that's a shame about your Viburnum. What about the trees around your area . . . any birches, beeches or maples turning gold to make you smile? :))

I couldn't agree more with you, Sheila. I think there has been some fantastic colour this autumn. Your photos are lovely.

Thank you Shirley :))

Sorry Sheila - all the big ones we can see from the house are sycamore or ash, and pesky they are too with all the seedlings! Mustn't grumble though, the rooks live there all spring. There are a few beeches but not visible from the garden. But on the other hand the shape of the sycamores in winter is very beautiful - swings and roundabouts really.

Don't mention the seedlings, lol - we have Sycamore and Ash IN our garden! (and a magpie family nesting in the Sycamore) Ah well, glad you have the dogwood at least :)
