I’m a big fan of foliage! There is no better time of the year than autumn for those who love foliage, and naturally fall is one of my favorite times of the year. I thought I would share with you some photos I have taken over the last month of the foliage from my garden. Tennessee often has amazing fall color and this year was no exception. I hope you enjoy seeing some of the fall color from my garden!

The majority of the fall foliage in this photo is from the sassafras trees. They tend toward the red and orange colors mostly.
Here is a ‘Bihou’ Japanese maple sporting some beautiful red color. The stems are yellow which makes this one a neat Japanese maple to own. I have it planted in a pot for portability!
There’s just a little of our fall color this year. Every year is a little different but it’s always fun to watch the foliage change color!
