Autumn is here. The leaves are piling up and getting moved (irregularly) onto the leaf mould pile!
Last year, see here, one of my Acers gave a spectacular display. Not so this year, although the general autumn colour has been first class. I am pretty sure I didn't miss the bright red display. I hadn't realised that there could be such a difference year on year.
These are the old beech trees lining the road to Skip.

A grey misty morning in Annandale!
