The Malverns on an Autumn day
I’m lucky to live in Malvern in Worcestershire and to be surrounded by this magnificant scenery. This is the view from my local supermarket car park. Having seen so many posts on blogs about Autumn colour and especially those of my American friends I have found myself looking with new eyes at the trees around me. As you can see from the photo above, apart from the trees which are planted in the car park (I think they might be Liquid Ambers but could very well be wrong) there is no strong autumn colour in this area.
Whilst I now there are a lot of Chestnut trees on the edge of the common near me I havent really engaged with what the other trees are that are naturally prevelant in this area. So today, as I had a days leave, I went for a walk up the hills to have a look see.
The most autumnal looking trees here at the moment are the Beech trees. These are one of my favourites. When I was a child we have three big beech trees at the end of our garden and in the autumn we would have great fun raking up huge piles of leaves and jumping in them. Whenever I see beech leaves in the autumn they remind me of those times.
