Autumn Colour at Dunham Massey

We last visited in June, when the Rose Garden was in full bloom, taking some fabulous photos of one of our favourites – raindrops on roses!

This time it was a beautiful, warm, sunny October day and we were keen to see some autumn colour. We were certainly not disappointed.

As expected, the trees were a picture….

The shrubs were pretty colourful too…

We managed to spot a few of the 150 free roaming fallow deer…

And were pleasantly surprised by how many flowers were still in bloom….

Even the fungi managed to look spectacular!


A fabulous day to be in sunny Cheshire with one of our favourite colours of all… sky!
