5th November, 2019 Misc. Autumn leaves.
I think it has been a slow autumn, the loss of leaves from the deciduous trees has been slow, here we are getting into November and very few trees have lost all their leaves although the rate of fall has quickened today with a blustery north-east wind and wintery showers blowing in along the North Sea coast. It has been a wet autumn – rain, rain and more rain and we have had the tail-end of a succession of Caribbean hurricanes which have whisked across the north Atlantic Ocean and drenched the west coast and Pennines first.
The photo above shows one section of the peripheral road around Pearson Park, Hull and examples some varying levels of leaf-loss.
