Autumn colour mystery
In the misty moisty days of November, there is still a lot of colour in the wild. This is a patch of blackthorn. The yellow leaves contrast strikingly with the rusty brown oak leaves and the silhouettes of the trees behind.
But here's a strange thing: in the misty photo above, the blackthorn on the right has yellow leaves, while on the left the leaves are green with a tinge of brown. The same plant but completely different colours. And so too with the brambles.
Some of them are bronzy red while others are still green and growing.
