I’m reprising these photos, taken almost exactly a year ago, in The Savill Garden, part of Windsor Great Park, cosseted by Virginia Water. I must return there soon, before the strengthening winds strip the trees bare. I hope these pictures might convince you to put on your wellies and get out there too – or to one of the other gardens that will be showcasing Autumn in all her fiery finery. Westonbirt Arboretum is on my list, Winkworth too – but there are plenty of places that will be ending the year with horticultural fireworks. The links below will lead you deep into the woods, somewhere near you I hope.
