Last of Our Autumn Colours

After a cold, dry sunny and calm weekend the weather has turned very mild even for November. The downside is that it's turned wetter and windier. The rain and wind have just about brought an end to the autumn colours as the last of the leaves are blown from the trees.
It's suddenly very noticeable that our acer has undergone a rather dramatic change over the last few days.
Nearly all it superb autumn colour has disappeared. There are just a few raggedy leaves hanging on. The forecast is for some stronger winds through Wednesday into Thursday morning so that will more than likely clear away the remaining leaves.

It's not all bad news though as in the tubs covered in fallen magnolia leaves have the first bulbs for spring just starting to push their noses through the soil.
With the weather set to turn colder by the time we get to the weekend these early shoots might regret popping up so soon.
