Autumn splendour is in store at two gardens near St Neots - opening under the National Garden Scheme next weekend.
Tickets are now on sale for the first autumn opening for Falling Water House and Old Farm Cottage in Staploe, where maples, spindles and ginkgos will be displaying the rich tints of the season.
Penny Miles from the Cambridgeshire National Garden Scheme team, said: “These two beautiful gardens have opened in the early summer for us for many years, but it is a real bonus to be able to see them for the first time in the autumn.
“We’re promised vivid pinks and yellows from trees that can produce some of the finest autumn displays, as well as all the other wonderful planting at Staploe, stunning at any time of year.
“I can’t wait to see it all again,” she added.
