Lovely Autumn colour Julien, but wish you had named them all! What is the second picture of? I probably know it, but just can't think of it at the moment! Senior moment! Hahaa!

All going out in glory; great photos. Very little colour in my space now, unless you count grey and black! Very cheering photos, Julien.

No wonder Autumn is your favourite! Its easy to forget to plan for Autumn colour.

Thank you for sharing, Julien. Beautiful depiction of Autumn indeed! Lots of pink hues noted. Beautiful berries and fantastic foliage of all shapes, sizes and colours!
I do love this time of year!

Thanks to all of you for your kind words, the second one for Rosie is the burning bush, Euonymus alarums, and the first one for seaburngirl is, well I too am having one of those senior moments it’s swimming around in my head somewhere, the one name that it could be is a type of Rodgersia but I cannot be sure, it is a perennial and before the leaves unfurl it sends up long flower stalks which are pink, it is by a large pool, I have worked for this chap for eighteen years so I should know, I will try and see if he can recall the name.

Here is the list,

2.euonymus alarums the burning bush
4.Iris foetidisimis the stinking Iris
5.physallis Chinese lantern
6.Abutilon Kentish Belle
7.Tree peony seeds
9.Liriodendron the tulip tree
10. Ivy flowers
11. Liquidamber
12. Continue
14.fallen cherry leaves
16.Persicaria firecracker.

Whoops spelling error, what the heck alarums, should read Alatus for euonymus.

The missing plant name, Darmera peltata. For seaburngirl.

Thanks for the names ... I had no idea that kolkwitzia had such pretty autumn colouring 🙂.

Absolutely stunning Julian, you have brightened my day, we are experiencing a really colourful autumn, lets face we sure need colour in our lives this year.... I'm adding to my favs for future reference as I too have senior moments more often than I'd like to admit, thankyou for naming and sharing..

Thanks lincslass, glad you liked them, colour is such an amazing thing and can lift our mood when we are down, my wife has been trying to strip the paint off her mums garage door, years and years of different colours, yellows blues greens reds and the rest, wow it looked a picture all those different colours, I just had to take some pictures of it much to her bemusement, it’s good she says but don’t think it would get in the Tate gallery ouch.
