I think we all know how spectacular flowering cherry trees are in Spring, ours are a mass of pure white flowers. But what I often forget is how equally spectacular they are in Autumn.

With the sun shining on them they are majestic, this photo hardly does them justice.

However, they also have another trick up their sleeve.

If you stand at the far end of the garden and look down the line of trees towards the house, the leaves are red. But if you stand at the other end and look down the line away from the house the leaves are yellow.

I like to walk through the arch and stand in the middle of them. Turn your head right you see yellow, turn your head left you see red. It’s a bizarre phenomenon.
