autumn trees

Leaves of Trees

The autumn colour in England is prominent this year.  We drove through Essex and Suffolk last weekend and found a lot of sparkling red and yellow trees, such as Maple, Beech and Oak.  Horse-chestnuts were unfortunately turned into brick-brown during the summer, by a kind of harmful caterpillar.

Now, finally the huge London Plane Tree leaves start to change their colours.  When they are have all fallen, the pavements will be covered by crisp brown leaves and sky above will be opened up to winter blue.  Then, only Holly and conifer leaves will be left in the chilly air.
