Plane Tree - Autumn 2012

The London Plane I have been ‘following’ during 2012 has been busy dropping its leaves like confetti at a wedding. The grounds surrounding are moving gently towards winter yet with an appreciation for autumn; I keep a tidy plot. I do however embrace the colour’s of autumn, and leave the leaves as long as I can. The Plane tree moreover treats us not only to an aerial display of colour, but a mottled carpet too; we just need a string quartet and some dancing fauns and the picture would be complete!

I feel the autumn colour is almost better from this plane tree when the leaves are sprinkled across the ground, with much colour variation across each huge palmate leaf - although naturally; the tree still looks stunning from across the lake.
