Hydrangea in autumn

Fuchsia –  a hardy variety which survives the coldest winter.  Occasionally the upper parts have been frosted, but cut back it grows vigorously and blooms just as well despite being cut back. 

 

Colour contrasts

 

Maple leaves – there is a strong smell of maple syrup near this tree!!

 

Sumach and willow
