Yes, the last of the trees to get denuded in Bristol this year are the oaks and the leaves are falling fast today from them as it is wet and windy.  But that only emphasises the bright red berries and leaves of the cotoneaster and my are they blazing out to all and sundry.  will post a picture later.

And still the lovely autumn colour gets better and better.  Even my Green Daleks look glamorous framed by the golden leaves of the weigela.

The one in my picture is very big and very old and flowers before mine and a,so colours up before mine as well.  My tree is 24 or so and only started flowering a couple of years ago so don't give up on it.  The flowers are lovely - like big yellow tulips.
