Autumn Colours

 Autumn colours are starting. Experts are predicting a wonderful autumn display this year due to the cold spring and warm summer. The trees have had perfect conditions to allow sugars to build up in the leaves which help to create the wonderful autumn colours.
We shall see whether they are right in due course. They say the peak will be towards the end of this month and the first week in November.
At the moment we are experiencing blustery conditions,  temperatures are still mild and the leaves are falling fast.
