A lovely day out nutcutlet.  Autumn colours are beautiful.

It was great, perfect weather, sun (hazy at times) and so still.

I bet that visit brought back some memories of the Man Himself, Nut.  photo 4, looks like a colutia, Bladder Sena.  The bark is most attractive, and the pods are interesting.  The Rhus, reminds me of what I see out of my window.  Back in the 60's I had one in my garden.  A couple of years later, it had vanished, only to be found in the next garden.  It didn't do so well there, so it appeared to move on.  Next stop, the elderl neighbour didn't like the new intruder, so she yanked it out.  Now for the past couple of years it is doing well the next garden.  It's produced so many suckers, that the garden is like a mini forest.  Now joining some Virginia Creeper on the fence, it looks as if the garden is on fire.

I like rhus Mike, though I know it can be a thug. The one in the photo was one of many suckers. I tried growing it but the deer liked it as a rubbing post and it was too young to cope.

Lovely pictures nut and thanks for sharing them with us. The colours are as good as any summer flower bed, and look especially nice in the autumn sunshine.

Lovely colours Nut.  Sadly lacking here in my new garden but I'm working on a list......

Can it all be visited in one day?  i'd love to fit it in on a trip to see friends or rellies.

Jumping in here if you'll excuse me .... Yes it can all be seen in one day without being strenuous. Good little cafe too.

I can recommend the Brie and cranberry sandwiches.

Thanks Dove.  Just need to find somewhere to park the dogs for a day as we usually take them with us on relly trips and there are none near there.   Worth a detour I reckon or maybe a trip on my own.

Lovely photos, thank you Nut. I'd love to go to Barnsdale.
