Oak Leaves.jpg

Whilst most of our trees have dropped there leaves, that carpet of golden Beech leaves lie in testimony to that. Some Oak trees have changed there unique shaped leaves from green to brown. Then there are some other Oak trees  that are defying the start of winter…..these leaves may look spring like, the reality is that they are thin and fragile, another strong wind or frost and they will be gone. For now they had a fresh feel to an otherwise bare and cold woodland
