However that aside I wanted to talk about my liquidambar. When I was training in hort I had a teacher who suggested that provided the ground is moist and it gets very cold temperatures at night autumn trees will have amazing colour. This year my grounds went kept constantly moist and I don't think the temps have dropped that much until maybe the last few day (we are now in winter of course). This being said have a look at my liquidambar.

Our liquidambar has been mostly yellow in the past but this year we have been treated to a number of colours. Yellow. orange and reds.
My neighbour is already tired of picking up the leaves out of her garden so thankfully after the rain and wind this weekend she won't have to do it much longer...
|What a lot of mulch :o)|
