Ilkeston - October Trees
w/e 18 October 2020
All of this week's pictures were taken with a Kodak DX6490

Pandemic or not the seasons roll on and in mid October the trees are showing the signs of autumn with the leaves turning colour and falling to the ground. Wherever you go in town the change can be seen but these images are mainly from the two parks near the town centre.

Park Cemetery

Heading towards Chaucer Old Park and seen here from Park Crescent is the entrance to Park Cemetery.
Cantelupe Road

On the park itself the ground is already covered with fallen leaves but there are still plenty more to come down from the trees along Cantelupe Road.
'Illy 'Oleys

Also on the Chaucer Old Park - this part is known locally as 'Illy 'Oleys - the trees near the play area, seen here on the left of the picture, are showing pink and red colours rather than the gold and yellows elsewhere.
Chaucer Junior School

Chaucer Old Park extends much further than 'Illy 'Oleys and the line of trees along the fence at Chaucer Junior School are showing a variety of colours.
Erewash Museum

There's a similar display of colours near the Erewash Museum.
Victoria Park

One obvious place to look for and appreciate the autumn is the other park near the town centre, Victoria Park.
Manners Road

Still a lot of green in the park but there's a splash of pink on the edge of Manners Road across from the Leisure Centre.
Play Area

The trees along the rest of Manners Road behind the play area have a range of colours in the brown and yellow region of the spectrum.

The same range of colours is also visible in the central area of the park around the bandstand.
Bristol Road

And on the Bristol Road side of the park one particular tree seems a lot closer to winter than most of the others and the skeleton is already showing through the falling leaves.
