Impressions of autumn: your pictures

In large parts of the UK, it seems as though autumn is never going to come.

The unseasonable mild weather has also had an effect on gardens, and that means many flowers and plants are still in full bloom confused by the conditions.

So why not send us some pictures of your garden, or the countryside where you live?

Have you got a plant in full bloom when it should be stripped bare?

Maybe the long summer has created a touch of vibrant colour.

  • We want you to send us your pictures - please follow the guidelines below, and we'll show some on Breakfast in the coming days
  • Our main picture shows a clematis in the garden of Colin Williams, who lives in Trunch, North East Norfolk.

    He says his house us just two miles from the coast, and that some of the plants have grown to twice their normal height for this time of year, and many are still coming into bud.
