Wood Barton Garden in November

Morning mist dampens sound and colour alike in this mature woodland, dispersing slowly so that shafts of light can reveal hidden treasures beneath the tree canopy. Autumn starts quietly enough around the house, as a soft gold creeps through the leaves of a magnificent tulip tree, a spreading Parrotia persica and crab apple tree. Foliage tints start early amongst acers such as Acer palmatum ‘Senkaki’, the coral bark maple, which turns a soft canary yellow that can be glimpsed from afar within the woodland. Dotted around are other maples in differing hues, some beneath a magnificent, mature handkerchief tree, Davidia involucrata, its heart-shaped leaves splashed with green, red and yellow all at once.
