October has ended

Postby Sharon Bryson » Oct 31, 2008 11:39 pm

We have had a very windy last few days in October, so leaves are becoming a thing of the past.
After a few wet days, the bright sun gave a chance for some pics, and getting bulbs planted(finally) (2 or 3 are "clickable")

Many of the trees are totally bare, but there are interesting leaves & color here and there.
The Japanese Kerria is a vivid yellow.
Image
The Japanese Maples seem especially red this fall....sometimes they seem to get a little "green", but not this year.
Image
On the other hand....Enkianthus is usually a bright red, but this year is a pale golden shade.
Image
Even the beech leaves have a certain charm.
Image
The Red Oaks are usually the last to loose leaves.
Image
This was taken in the bright, late afternoon....

Wow, the first and the last pictures just blow me away. Even when they're naked, birches speak so much beauty. Edie

Hi Edie:
Glad you enjoyed our "bare bones".
I really meant to post this in the Gallery, but I guess the "jump to" command didn't jump!
