Autumn. Or Fall as it is known in the United States. Apparently in Britain in the 16th century we tended to use the words 'fall of the leaf' or 'fall of the year' to describe the season and in the 17th century the word Fall was taken with those that emigrated to North America. The word Fall fell out of use here and we embraced the word Autumn.
New England is famous for the colour of the leaves during the Fall and I have been privileged to be able to visit twice. This year however we decided to make a much shorter trip and visited Westonbirt Arboretum.
I was a little snap happy!
And on the way home we had lunch at this really lovely pub called The Tunnelhouse Inn.
And found this amazing tunnel entrance to a disused canal.
In the meantime, the Maple in our backgarden hadn't done too badly for colour.
Thanks for stopping by.
