Fallen Acers

By elkiebrooks  
In the southwest of Devon just outside of Plymouth is a tourist attraction called "The Garden House". It's usually open from March until the end of autumn in November. Last year the garden was still full of colour during the last days of autumn and the gardens were opened specially to the public again for a further weekend.

As the Gardens are just up the road from my home I decided to take advantage of this extra oppotunity to wonder around and take some photographs.

Whilst on my wonderings I bumped into a couple of fellow photographers who had blagged themselves an early entry to avoid the crowds (lucky buggers) and they informed me that they had moved a bunch of acer leaves just under a small waterfall to set up a shot. They pointed in the right direction and this is the result.

If you are ever around the Plymouth area and like to visit gardens then I can say that The Garden House won't disappoint you.

Thanks for looking and to those that viewed, commented and voted on the last upload. Much appreciated.
