In October there's nothing quite like walking into a garden and being surrounded by a tapestry of rich warm foliage colours.
It's the trees and their hues of burnt oranges, ambers and reds that arrest the attention. They're the soul of the garden .....
The Allure of Autumn continues today with part two of my series of autumnal photos from Branklyn Garden in Perth.

It's All In The Detail
For all the leaf peepers and those that enjoy momijigari here's a closer look at some of the October foliage from the garden.
|There are the leathery Stewartia monadelpha leaves|
|and colourful leaf litter.|
|Beautiful autumn colour from the deciduous Rhododendron leaves|
|along with the striking colours from Liquidambar styraciflua | American Sweetgum leaves.|
|Finely dissected Japanese acer leaves|
|and glimmers of gold and amber foliage.|
|... and finally the juxtaposition of the acer and the betula.|
As I mentioned in my last post Branklyn Garden is closed to the public during the winter months but you can see more images of the garden in these posts:
