Stunning Autumn Colours - Pt 1

Putting the Cambridge posts on hold in order to show you some stunning Autumn colours in Sheffield Park Gardens yesterday. Not the town Sheffield, in the North of England but a beautiful garden to the south of London. Decided to go and walk there before the leaves finally fell. The garden is a combination of 18th century landscape overlaid with a 20th century planting scheme planted around 5 large lakes.

I am posting these photos over 2 posts as there are a lot of great photos and worth seeing, even though I say it myself! Enjoy!

































































If you enjoyed the stroll
Come back for part 2

Oh yes! I'll be back. The white of the ornamental grasses against the scarlet leaves is gorgeous as are the salmon-colored leaves and the gold. Just stunning! Great photography, Barbara...

Those reds are so luscious. So very different to all our gum trees. And I really love the lakes, water always seems to complete a garden.

Oh my goodness - SO beautiful! Fall colors are something I will miss while I'm in Taiwan. Perhaps I will have to visit your blog often and enjoy them through your lens.

The colors of your world are gorgeous! As they are here. I especially loved the contrast of the reds with the white. Didn't God do a great job when He created our world? I think He paints the colors of Autumn just for us.

I just discovered You! Thank you so much, your pictures are beautiful! We visited England this summer and fell in love. We had a private garden tour that was beyond all our expectations.
