Where is the king parrot going to lurk when all the autumn leaves have fallen.Had afternoon tea amongst a grove of silver birch today and their leaves were just starting to colour!
It is the length of the days that trigger the leaves to turn. Because we are in a valley, we don't get the sun until a while after sunrise and the opposite happens in the evening. This must result in the trees thinking the days are shorter and that it is later in Autumn than the ones where you had afternoon tea.
Yes you are right Hazel, I am still picking strawberries, zucchini and red peppers from my protected vegie garden.
Clever Hazel. I thought it was all in the cooling of the soil. Mother Nature sure did a good job in her camouflage . I really had to look for the King parrot.
