On Monday I was waxing lyrical about newly planted trees: today we enjoyed the more mature beauty of Nostell Priory and its glorious parkland on a cold but bright day with leaves in free fall. Such has been the dryness of October (driest in 65 years) added to the rain we had in a warm spring, it seems we are reaping the benefit of a perfect storm. The tree colour has rarely been better.
