A Little More Fall Color

The other day I was taking the little girls out to the dog room when I noticed some of the beautiful color at the back of the garden. So I ran back inside to get my camera.

This is my Red Emperor Japanese maple. I swear, it has never turned this color in the fall before. I always thought it was kind of a dud. I was so happy to see this color on it. And the very next day, it was completely bare!

Again, this little maple has not done much as far as color change in the fall. Its color this year was just glowing.

My silly dogwood tree. It never blooms in the spring. But fortunately, it always turns beautiful colors in the fall.

And just turning and looking toward the front of the garden. The flowering cherry and apple tree are there in the background, and that is the Camperdown elm tree in front of them.

We have been having quite a bit of rain (YAY!!) It has stopped all of the fires that were burning in California, and has provided some cleaning for the dusty pine trees on my road šŸ™‚

  1. I am loving your beautiful photos. The colors are eye candy. We didn’t have a “fall” here in Maryland as the leaves just turned brown, curled up, and fell off. We had SO MUCH rain it affected the fall colors. Thanks for sharing these pretty trees with us.

  2. WOW. I love the reds! We actually had a little bit of fall color around here which is practically unheard of, but I guess all of the rain or else the early freezes helped bring it about? Any case, it was nice, but not nearly as gorgeous as your yard. šŸ™‚
