Autumn colours

Hello John, I have just looked at (and loved) your 'Autumn Colours' web site, which contains many species that I have never seen, and quite a few that I have never heard of! My only slight grouse is that one does not seem to be able to move from one alphabetical section to another without going back to the cover page, might it be possible to add a button to move directly to the next section?

Some wonderful and interesting plants there - and super photos - gives November a good name! Now I wish I had a few acres to play with. Mike Darvill, up on the North Downs with heavy acid clay has a great collection of autumn colouring trees and shrubs. So interesting how different species of the same genus can vary hugely - so Betula ermanii with us and other gardens I've seen it in is brilliant yellow-gold, but B. utilis var. jacquemontii (at least the one in our garden) turns an unprepossessing brown.

Good to read your December Diary John, thought you were perhaps away in warmer climates.  Thanks for the Autumn Colour Pages, it's a great site, just the thing to browse on a dull winter day., deserves more publicity!
