It’s been rather hectic over the last couple weeks around here and I’m just now getting to my own Fall Color Project post! I figured a retrospective look back at the last few weeks would find the peak of the fall color season in my area.
Way back on October 12, 2010 we had the first of the trees beginning to change – sassafras!
An oak leaf hydrangea on November 2, 2010 is just beginning to turn. It’s in a sheltered spot in the corner shade garden and probably receives additional heat from the house.
Another shot of the shed on November 5, 2010 shows the gold color more solid in the individual leaves but the tree has lost leaves. Fall is progressing!
November 9th brings more fall color to the Shasta viburnum. It’s been a rough year for many plants and this Shasta has lost more than a few leaves due to drought conditions.
This fall has been spotty at best. Peak time here was probably the middle to the end of October but there are still some trees with leaves hanging on. It won’t be long though until the fall colors are done for this year!
