Just A Wee Bit of Color


For some unaccountable reason, although it may have something to do with the drought we had all summer, our trees have not been as brilliantly colored as in years past. A few trees are showing color this week. These can be seen out my kitchen window, and I am grateful for even this small bit of fire. 

Edit:  I stand corrected. I had not been out in the car for 2 days when I wrote this - but we went out for an early dinner tonight and I was amazed at how colorful the trees had become almost overnight. Perhaps the colder nights we've had lately had something to do with that.

CONGRATS Pn 32 years Smoke-Free, my dear. We did ourselves a lot of good by stopping!

I love the colour, it warms your heart.

Had the same thing happen here. Took a road trip and was amazed by the color, especially specimen trees in peoples yards.
However 40 miles north/west, everything was naked. Weird.

We had the opposite experience--went for a ride and felt disappointed by the muted colors--then a few days later were amazed by the blazing colors in our back yard and our own neighborhood. It was glorious, but is all gone now.

The trees in Toronto are already bare, except for a few that are wearing nothing but what appears to be loads of ruby-red jewels: berries.

Love those leafy pictures. It seems to be an atypical fall all across the country. Our fall fell slowly and was wet and yielded a week or so of red leaves which normally we don't get in SE Washington State.

That is the only thing I miss in Arizona; the beautiful fall colors of the maple trees and of others.

I would love to see your country in the fall. My garden was full of gorgeous golds and reds last week but then we had some dreadful gales (they travel on the gulf stream bringing the tale end of hurricanes from the south) and now the trees are like skeletons.

Gorgeous, Judy. Thanks for sharing with a Cal girl who doesn't see much color change down at the beach.

I love the gentler - more subtle colours too.

On Mt. Pleasant road there is a house with two huge trees... we went by too fast to tell what kind.... and they were both a blazing fiery hot yellow, each and every leaf. Absolutely gorgeous, rivaling even the hottest hot tamale red maple around.

They are lovely!!! We had some glorious trees in Ohio this fall!!! I just didn't feel well enough to photograph them.
