My Acer tree's leaves turned red this year, after a couple of years of staying mostly green in the Autumn. I particularly love the vibrant reds, yellows and oranges of the trees and shrubs, helped by the sun shining at the right time.
I often collect a few leaves on my walks, just to admire them for a few days, along with conkers, with their tactile shape and size.
Seeing trees bare branched with their leaves on the ground around them, I am struck by sense that they have shook off a set of clothes.
