    Fall shots

    My woods are alive with color these days. When the sun hits the trees they almost look like they're on fire sometimes.

    These are lovely. I miss that. Around here the only natural fall colours are brown, straw yellow, and grey. There is one exception; the Toxicodendron diversilobum turns a brilliant red before shedding it's leaves. We haven't had a cold snap yet, so generally the leaves are just drying brown and wilting off. The plant is an excellent creaper/ espalier and demands little maintenance. It actually demands it, or else.

    Thank you, Kevin. Having lived close to "lawzanjelleez", for most of my adult life, I know exactly what you mean about the lack of color in the changing seasons, in fact, there isn't a great deal of change at all.

    Gorgeous! The blue sky makes me want to take deep breaths, just looking at the pictures! I hope to get to go up to the Blue Ridge once this fall, to take pictures of the colors (and maybe visit just one winery...).

    I particularly enjoy the first photo. Not only are the colours beautiful but the POV is unusual, a rare thing.

    I am enjoying my last Canadian winter. (Moving to the England for a while).

    Out of my study window is the most beautiful Canadian maple which is displaying it's autumn finery, I feel, just for me.

    Incredible. . . Especially the last one. I only wish autumn could last more than a week in NE Ohio. . .

    You know that 'fall' is all about trees having their anual poo right?

    It's Nature's Annual Fashion Strip Revue,
    a riotous strut on the catwalk and then
    a brazen blazing exposure of bare limbs,
    daring designers to do better next time.

    Only a potty could equate the act of undressing
    with the impending elimination of wastes.

    It's true, during autmn they pump all their bad bits into the leaves and then grab a newspaper.

    Trees make a dooty. Something new I can tell all my friends.
