Autumn Maple

red autumn maple leaves

At the weekend we visited Chatsworth House in Derbyshire and walked the gardens and woodland trail. The autumn leaves looked quite spectacular, particularly the red maple. :-)

The berries of the yew tree look unusual. The seed is formed first then the red flesh grows around the seed, leaving an opening at one end. The seeds are poisonous, as are most parts of the yew tree...

Even though they are poisonous, they sure do look attractive. I like the red in the yew berries and the leaves in the first picture.

I've been longing for something colorful besides the mundane look of palm trees. These are lovely John.
