September 3rd – Hornbeam trees are fascinating. Often mistaken (particularly by me) for beech, the leaves are perfectly ridged and beautiful, but the seeds, in long drop chains a bit like sycamore, are fascinating.
They’re ripening now and will soon be dappling the cycleways, pavements and industrial estate backways with golden brown mast.
Autumn’s colours may be more muted, but they’re still gorgeous.
