London Autumn trees, October 2007
Apparently the depth of red or yellow colour that Autumn leaves attain is determined by how much sustained warmth the tree enjoyed during the summer. Clearly, last year was an unspectacular but sustained, warm summer. Clearly this year was not – this same avenue of trees near my house that was ablaze with colour last Autumn is a kind of mottled combination of green and already-dead brown leaves this year.
