Photos of the week: baby pine trees and bracken

Baby Canary pine trees are a completely differnet colour from the mature, green trees. They’re a lovely pale blue. Now, in late autumn, the bracken has turns shades of gold and brown. I think the combination is beautiful, particularly when it’s all wet.

And near the top of the pine forest there’s the dark green of the codeso bushes too.
