However, Autumn comes with some of my favourite colours which seem to change overnight in to stunning hues.
I love to explore new places & so my friend & I set off to enjoy the Autumn colours in the pretty Worchestershire village of Arley.
The lovely, unassuming Arley church
It was our first visit to the stunning arley-arboretum and it did not disappoint.
These massive redwood trees just towered above us & looking up to photograph them made me feel a little dizzy ...
The walled Italian garden was stunning with two gorgeous fountains & a lovely arbour - I have been thinking about an arbour all summer for my garden ... I think I should!
We had come to view the trees and were not disappointed with the selection. I loved the beautiful colours & shapes of the leaves - here is a selection of ones I photographed!
The sheltered walled garden was still an absolute riot of colour - absolutely breath-taking in its intensity! ♥ These colours are just so uplifting!
Some bees & butterflies were enjoying the last of the Summers nectar
My hydrangeas at home tend to be small & not very exciting but they grow ubundantly at Arley in all shapes, sizes & colours .... the top right hand ones would be my choice as they are my favourite colours because of their vintage look in colours that I love. I so want my hydrangeas to be abundant like this so I can pick huge bunches for the house ....
A very interesting time doing photos in a new place ... I hope you have enjoyed my visit to Arley with me. Please stop by again & leave your details so I can return the visit.
