I hopped, skipped my way to 
National Trust's Sheffield Park in East Sussex 

A dear Garden Club leader
tipped me off to this autumn wonderland
last spring

I'd waited 6 months to see this

In my corner of England,
autumn is primarily amber, caramel, & green

Yet at Sheffield Park, oriental maples (acers) don their scarlet wardrobe

As I walk around many of the parks in England on a weekday
I am often the youngest person by a mile

The elderly in their golden years may have
canes or wheelchairs
but they cannot be stopped
from drinking the tranquility nature offers

A wonderful way to spend the day
at any age

and definitely worth the six month wait
