In season: autumn foliage
It may have been a disastrously wet spring and summer but as is so often Nature's way, there is a happy and glorious ending in the form of a stunning display of autumnal foliage that looks set to cover the country as the season develops. Take a look at the trees in town and countryside and watch as their leaves turn, first yellow-green and pale gold, to orange and terracotta, and then perhaps crimson and purple. Wild cherries, field maples and silver birches... their branches seem to burn with gold and rubies in the low light of autumn.
