Some Autumnal Colours – Watercolour

This is a small oak sapling growing at the back of my garden. It usually blends into the background of thorns and hedges but its few leaves have started to stand out as they wither. I planted this, from a small seedling which found its way into my garden, a few years ago. The “tree” is now around 4 feet tall and is starting to gain in height more rapidly. I am very fond of trees so this is a sort of legacy. In future years, people will gaze at a magnificent oak and marvel at it size and beauty. They will also say, “What idiot planted that so close to the house?”
