The garden transforms!
Japanese Maples perform spectacular colour changes: bold & soft golds, greens, oranges & reds transform the colour palette of the garden, before dropping gently into rest. This time of year fills the air with a feeling of change as leaves fall gracefully from the branches and come to softly settle on the ground. Plants begin their period of calm. Trees and branches start to reveal their superb architecture; previously hidden by foliage in the earlier months. Temperatures begin to drop and everything breathes a sign of relief as the growing season slips into rest and the cooler, calmer time of year begins.
There is a magic in the garden in autumn as everything is changing all at once; the colours, the architecture, even hidden views begin to be revealed. The constant dropping of leaves makes the place feel active as it lets go of what is past. It is a time of change and letting go.
