but I have become mildly obsessed with autumnal beech leaves. This year they seem to be particularly beautiful, especially with the sun shining on them, and a backdrop of soft blue sky. There is a straggle of young beech trees running along the back boundary of our garden. They are only small trees, dotted about, but rain or shine, gloom or glow, their glorious ginger-biscuit coloured leaves shine out, bringing a warmth and beauty to the wood as it declines into winter.
I just can't resist them!
