Garden Tuesday: Reds

Some of the reds are pretty nice this year, like this dogwood.
The burning bushes near my gate are not changing at an even rate: they're green and red. Do they think they're celebrating Christmas early?
The other side of the garden has burning bushes that are more evenly red, but the shadows on this fine, sunny day make it hard to see.
Yesterday's clouds make the color much more vivid.
The scarlet maples we passed on the way to the farm the other day have an unbelievable red hue! I am so jealous!
This maple of ours is yellow. But it's a nice shade of yellow.
Happy color watching, everyone! Too soon all the leaves will fall off the trees, and we'll be wishing for warmer weather again.

With this weird weather, my horse can't decide whether to shed her coat or grow it. She might look pretty darned interesting in another month if she hedges her bets.

Ahhhh, leaves. Beautiful colors.

A touch jealous, I am. We don't have much red down here this year. In fact, most of our colors have been very muted.

Leaf colors are beautiful, Marjie. I would love to see it in person. The colors are a bit late this year, aren't they?
