A Golden Glow in Richmond Park

A view of Richmond Park, London in the glow of an Autumn sun.

Richmond Park is a very special place for Alison and she says that without it she couldn't survive in London. In her beautiful loose,watercolour style she's put down the "raw sienna carpet of bracken as it dies back and the copper gold of the beach leaves".

She tells me that the park has a path which runs right the way around it and that there are parts that are densely wooded with magnificent old oak trees. That's my kind of place too - there's just something about trees that bring a sense of peace and belonging especially if the trees are as aged and wise as these.

I've never been to Richmond Park but Alison makes it sound and look very appealing.

Thank you for this lovely card.

Alison,this is beautiful,I can see why you love the area. You have created a perfect Fall scene with all the colors I long to see! I love how Trees scream the colors of warmth before giving way to the monochrome colors of winters chill!

Ah, London's parks really do show themselves off outrageously at this time of year. Kicking leaves about on cold,sunny days, you have sold it to me. I'm there!!

I love the 'outrageous' colours too, Alison. Glowing, transparent beauty.
