Fall color is on its way! Or colour as the case may be! Those Canadians have to do things different don’t they? 😉 However you spell it the fall foliage is well on its way to peaking. Here in Tennessee I would estimate that peak color is about a week or so away but we don’t have to wait to leaf gawk, we can jump right into the blogs listed below and fill our fall colour fix!
Joy over at Garden4Joy has some very nice colour in the trees near her home. Maples, one of my personal favorite trees, are bursting in the colors of flame – red, orange, and yellow – which is one reason they are one of my favorites! The photos of fall colour that she took over the waters on her way to Kingston epitomize the beauty of fall!
Last year Janet took a trip to Westonbirt arboretum and came home with some fantastic pictures. Guess what? She did it again this year too! The picture you just have to see is the Japanese Maple. It’s form and shape combined with the color of Autumn make it a masterpiece maple.
Back in Pennsylvania garden author and blogger Nancy Ondra saw her region suffer from a similar summer to the one down here – too hot and too dry. Despite the challenges of the summer of 2010 she was still able to capture some great images of autumn. Another one of my garden favorites is in her picture to the left here. Do you know it? If not hope on over to Gardening Gone Wild and find out!
Thank you to all participants! I can’t wait to see more fall colors as the season progresses. Come back next Friday for more of the Fall Color Project!
