|Japanese maples under larches.
A talk to the Friends took me to Westonbirt Arboretum today and afterwards Dan Crowley, the arboretum's Dendrologist, was kind enough to walk round the collection with me. Most of the maples had lost their leaves, but a surprising amount of colour remains, and despite the gloomy weather it was by no means drab.These photos are a sampler of the diversity of maple foliage and colours still looking good.
