Autumn buds and berries.

Lovely Autumnal/Fall colour in the garden, and on the bund/hill. My favourite seasons for colour – Summer and Autumn. I love the rich, deep warm tones. I just wish I had a bigger garden to enjoy an abundance of vibrant, warm colour! I don’t have many leaves changing colour as yet, but, some berries and buds emerging.

Great photos Kate! I have berries on the Pyracanthas, red, yellow and orange so the birds will be happy! Leaves on the Grapevine are only just beginning to change colour, bit later than last year I think.

Great captures & good autumn color in your garden Kate. Looks like a feast for some hungry critters.

Lovely Kate. You might not have a huge garden, but it's very lovely and very colourful. :)

Lovely! it doesn't seem long since you were asking how to plant up the bund does it?

Thanks Julia and Shirley, seems like we’re hanging on a bit longer doesn’t it! Saying that, once Autumn arrives fully, it’ll be a lovely sight!
Thanks Bathgate, hopefully the birds and beasties will enjoy!
Thanks Karen, that’s kind of you. Still wish it was as big as yours! :)
Thanks Sue, I know, things seem to have flourished!

The berries look lovely at this time of year. Enjoy looking at them before the critters get them.

Linda, thanks, I do agree. They’ll be eaten in no time!
Thanks Lincslass and Sunnydais, I’m pleased there’s lots for the wildlife this year, plus as you say, good colour too!
Thanks Hywel, it’s such a lovely season, mist and mellow fruitfulness as per Keats! ;)

Lovely to see so many colourful berries in your garden, Kate!

Here in Huntingdon there are few trees changing colour at present but only yesterday I was looking at some of the trees that are starting to change leaf colour. These are mostly starting at the tips of some branches & working backwards & down.

In a week's time there will be much more colour on the trees & once we get a frost, probably before the end of the month, they will change much more quickly - as well as starting to fall off!

Just because I garden on a balcony doesn't make me immune to having to gather up fallen leaves in the autumn! There is a row of trees along our street that shed leaves by the millions - & I end up with a few 1,000s in the balcony!

Thank you Balcony! It’s a favourite time of the year, pretty warm colours, bonfires, cozy evenings etc.

I can imagine, no matter where we live, we have the effects of falling leaves and the clear up! Saying that, I bet the row of trees along your way must look very beautiful in their autumnal colours!

Unfortunately they don't! They turn a drab yellow/brown butt he one that was closed to our block of flats & also produced a fine display of bright yellow leaves in the autumn was cut down earlier this year for no apparent reason as it looked very healthy! :(

It's demise left a HUGE "hole" in the view down the road from our block of flats! They also cut down a smaller one further down the road, in the same line of trees with a few others pruned back. The difference is HUGE as we can now see halfway along the length of the road, till in makes a slight turn & falls a few feet.

I have photos on my computer of past years when it was in full colour, as well as others "documenting" the day it was cut down!

I'll upload a couple of pictures to my photos page so you can see the tree in its full autumn beauty.

What a real shame. Your pics on your pages look really nice. The trees look a lovely autumnal colour too! I wonder why on earth they decided to chop them down?
I bet they looked nice in all the seasons, even winter! It’s better to have them than not..:(
