Reflecting on a stunning autumn as 20C days are predicted for this week... but watch out for 'blood rain' at Halloween due to red dust blown from the Sahara

Mother Nature's autumn show: Visitors to Studley Royal Water Garden, near Ripon, North Yorkshire, got a double delight as the spectacular golds, bronzes, purples and yellows of the leaves were mirrored in the lake

They say there is nowhere quite like New England in the fall.
But old England is giving the U.S. a run for its money this year, with the trees around the Lake District transformed by the changing season into a glorious tapestry of green, red, copper and gold.
And with forecasters predicting unseasonably warm weather on its way in the UK this week, conditions will be perfect for those hoping to get outdoors to take in the breathtaking autumn scenery.

These spectacular pictures show how the leaves on the trees surrounding Derwentwater in the Lake District have deepened to warm russet hues, forming a stunning backdrop to the placid waters of the lake.
They show a picture-perfect autumn day for hikers and sailors in the area, and the Met Office has said temperatures could soar as high as 20C this week thanks to a wave of hot air from North Africa which is due to sweep through the UK from tomorrow.
Continuing this year's pattern of wacky weather, it could also bring 'blood rain' to our shores - rain carrying red dust from the Sahara desert.

In Devon the arrival of autumn brought with it the traditional World Bolving championships, held on Exmoor over the weekend.
Bolving is the deep-throated unique to red deer stags during the rutting season.
The call is designed to frighten off other stags leaving the hinds - females - to the individual stag for mating.
Contestants in the World Bolving championships have to roar - or bolve - across a large valley in the hope of getting a stag to bolve back, which scores points with the judges.

Over one hundred and fifty nature lovers gathered at Draydon Rails to see the ninth annual contest in aid of the Devon Air Ambulance Trust.
Previous winner, Richard Eales, who now organises the event, said the contest started life as a bet among locals in the Rock Inn pub over who could get a stag to call back.
Last year's winner Elvis Afanasenko, who lives on the moor, retained his world champion title at the weekend.
Bolving was traditionally used across Europe to hunt deer who were a problem to farmers, but difficult to locate. A good call attracted the stags and made them easier to find.
