There are rows of what I call lollipop trees at the front and the back of the place where I live. They are pruned into that shape for some reason. All the foliage from the row on the north side of the building bordering the car park has fallen now, leaving bare branches and piles of dead leaves by the paths and on the grass. They don’t have interesting autumnal colours but the shape and the upstanding rib designs are quite attractive. The row of similar trees on the south side of the building still has leaves attached. Some have fallen into dull piles and drape the terrace and my shrubbery but the leaves remaining on the trees are remarkably colourful by comparison especially in this morning’s bright sunlight. The pictures below were taken today through my window.
