Autumn Leaves

The British Isles have few native trees with leaves that turn red before falling in the autumn. Our trees have leaves which tend to turn gold. There seemed to be a thousand shades of gold in beech trees and hedges recently seen in the Scottish Borders and it is always a beautiful sight to see ornamental gardens designed to show trees in the many shades of autumn especially when weak sunlight filters through. But when the leaves fall, who hasn’t enjoyed walking along, kicking them and making a rustling sound.
