It’s almost irresistible – the urge to decorate the inside with the beauty found outside. Those reds! Those amazing watercolours on leaves – if these were captured on canvas they would be declared masterpieces, yet here they are – dazzling for a few short days before crumbling to dust.

We deck the sitting room with their beauty and wait for replacements until they all have to give way to a more trying season.
