Autumn in Stuarts Park

Stuarts Park, Middlesbrough, is somewhere I've written about a few times. It's a lovely period park that has been getting slowly restored over the last few years and I spend my lunch time there as often as I can. The upper ponds area of the park is one of the recently restored areas and is starting to look really good now that the mud slick that has surrounded the ponds for the last few months has started to give way to grass. There is a lovely selection of trees there including one of my favourites, the weeping willow. If I ever have a garden big enough to accommodate a large pond, then it will definitely have a weeping willow planted next to it.

I thought I'd post a few of the pictures I've taken of the autumn colours around the ponds.

These last two pictures are of the main landscaped grass area of the park, looking down towards the new lake.

 If anyone lives anywhere near I'd urge a visit to go and see this great collection of trees at what is probably their best.
