Something about this year’s autumn in Hamburg is special. An explosively fabulous riot of colours fills parks and streets. Leaves rustle underneath your feet, and while plenty still adorn the trees, contrasts between the dark wood of branches and remaining foliage are becoming stronger. How much more do we have left of this season that is tugging on my heartstrings? My slightly melancholy thoughts about this led me on another walk through one of my favourite parks, Planten un Blomen (previously mentioned in this blog). And this is what I discovered – a world of autumn.
