This report is just in from the Arboretum:-
The long summer days have given way to autumn and a spectacular show of colour at the Yorkshire Arboretum. The 120 acre garden of trees, located opposite Castle Howard, is already awash with swathes of red, gold and yellow foliage even though some trees have yet to reach the pinnacle of their autumn display.
Yorkshire Arboretum Director John Grimshaw said “The trees here are glorious in every season but this autumn has been quite spectacular so far and we expect the display to last well into November. Even trees that don’t usually colour well are amazing”.
