Re(6): Listener 4357: Aft by Nutmeg

Very enjoyable. I agree the clues were really well crafted. I looked in vain for a study to colour scarlet, The Copper Beeches being an unfamiliar title to me. I thought the set of five different meanings of 'pip' was brilliantly exploited. Until I discovered the title on Wikipedia the five words from the clashes didn't look as though they had much in common.

Colouring was a bit of a challenge. I decided that none of my available highlighters and crayons was close to copper, so I prepared a filled grid using Sympathy, where stock colours can be modified. I still had to enter orange dots and to speckle BAND by hand.
