The Autumn colours are almost done after a week of rain and winds. Luckily I captured this lovely tree before the rains.
It is a Liriodendron tulipifera or Tulip Tree and one of my favourite trees. It's an almost perfect tree for the garden - attractive broadly conical/columnar shaped tree with glossy dark green leaves and wonderful gold autumn colour, with beautiful, unusual green flowers in Spring. Perhaps the only negative are the leaves on the lawn, but it is easy enough to rake them straight onto the rose garden
The initial colour is a clear lemon yellow which darkens as Autmn settles in.
These unusual flowers are often difficult to see as they blend in with the foliage.
