We have such a plethora of fall colour in this part of thr world with the famous maple trees and so on that sometimes the more subtle colours are overlooked.

In one corner of the garden we have a huge, tall larch tree (European larch, not the tamarack) which is a deciduous conifer – yes, there are some – and this week it is putting on a splendid show as all the earlier, flashier leaves from maples and so on are falling onto the lawn.
