The Garden House is now closed until March but it certainly went into hibernation with a final flourish. The Acer Glade was originally planted with 40 varieties of Japanese maples at the end of the 1970's. They've grown, of course, and seem to colour up more spectacularly every year. This year has been no exception and, aided by warm days, cool nights and very moderate winds, the colour has been glorious. It's certainly yielded some interesting photos.
