...because the display of autumn colours in the woodlands of Kent yesterday (around Wye and Canterbury) was absolutely beautiful, as good as I have ever seen ;)

Ahhhhhhhhh... so soothing.

Cheshire and the Peak District were spectacular yesterday.

After the summer we had I wasn't sure what to expect as I thought the intensity of the autumn colours was related to the amount of sugars stored by the trees and sunlight is needed to create said sugars.:smile:

Looked good to me. ;)

My wife tells me it's because of the weather pattern we had this year that we have these colours (watches too much daytime TV, no doubt) . So it's not necessarily to do with just the sun. After hot summers there's not usually any colour round my way. Perhaps you need it hot & wet or hot/wet/hot, hot/wet/cold/hot? Anyone know?

I'd heard this too - warm spring followed by wet summer I think.

The inimitable Billy Bragg originally, thoughy I think Kirsty McC (RIP) covered it too.


I also like New England by Jonathan Richman: (but I can't find it on youtube)
