Enjoying the Red, Yellow and... er, Orange?
I had to go to Corsham last week to visit my dentist, but as I arrived early, I took the opportunity to have a brief exploration of the town's Millennium Garden. I've only really looked at it in passing before and whilst it wasn't the best of times of the year to have a closer look, there was still quite a bit of interest.
I was especially taken with the above Acer. Bright red stems and buttery yellow leaves did much to raise my spirits on the kind of miserable day which November seems to specialise in. I also admired its bright orange berries...
Hold on, Acers don't have berries, never mind bright orange ones!
A closer inspection revealed my error: the rowan tree nearby had lovingly adorned the Acer with lots of its berries.
