Leaf Peeping Picnic at Westonbirt Arboretum

One of my favourite days out is packing a picnic and going to Westonbirt Arboretum to see the Japanese Maple collection in full Autumnal colour.



Yesterday the weather was clear, crisp and bright so we packed the picnic hamper and all the camera equipment we could carry and headed off for a day of 'leaf peeping'.  



I hope you find the fall foliage as beautiful and varied as I do because I will posting some of my favourite photos.  



I promise, I won't make you look at all of the 300 photos I took yesterday!


With all it's vibrant colours and variety of leaf shapes, how could you not enjoy a day leaf peeping at Westonbirt!

    1. I am so pleased to hear that I am not the only one who gets emotional over the autumn leaves. Every year I try to study beautiful trees and plants and try to commit their colours to memory. I really don't think there are many things more beautiful. I will be posting more photos soon. Please come back for more.

      Thanks!

  3. These pics are gorgeous. I absolutely love the fall...the trees, the weather, wearing sweatshirts, soup, clear and cold nights. I recently took some leaf pics too! I HAVE to get them up on the sorely neglected blog. Soon, soon.

    1. I agree....I love EVERYTHING about autumn. I wish it lasted longer but maybe it wouldn't be as special if it did. I can't wait to see your foliage photos!!!!! : )
