The days might be shorter and the weather colder but the gardens are looking better than ever right now as Autumn colour reaches it's peak!

The leaves took their time to change colour this year, the Woodland Trust says they are around two weeks late but it's been worth the wait as the yellow, bronze and reds begin shining through.

You've been out enjoying the Autumnal colour and have captured it on camera. Here's a selection of photographs from across the region. Many thanks to everyone who has sent in pictures. Don't forget to keep reading as you'll find information further down the page on how to become a Nature Detective

Don't forget...the address if you'd like to share your weather pictures is centralweather@itv.com.

Enjoy....
