Friday Flora: 11.11.16

Spring arrives sooner in London than the rest of the UK whilst Autumn is a latecomer but at last the season has turned its attention to leaf forms and colours. 1-olivers-leaf This Japanese maple caught my grandson’s eye so we scanned it and employing the same colour palate is the Judas tree or Cercis, aptly called forest pansy

 

Don’t give/care a fig is far from applicable to the foliage of Ficus

and with a final flourish the autumn twilight gives Whitehall a fabulous flushautumn twilight on Whitehall view from St James' park
Today is Armistice day when we pray silence for the guns and count the fallen.

And today, Leonard Cohen died leaving a legacy of lyricism

autumn light on fig trees St James' park - monochrome
Wherever you move
I hear the sounds of closing wings
of falling wings” [From L. Cohen “The Spice-Box of Earth]
