Celebrating gardens, photography and a creative life
That’s how our leaves looked last month. 😉
It’s a pity the leaves can’t cling on a little longer when they start to colour.
I know. Like spring, fall is fleeting. At least in Maine.
Lovely Autumn colours. We always think of yellow, golds, oranges and reds when we think of this time of year – I’m always surprised at the number of rich crimsons and pinks mixed in.
I sometimes collect a wide selection and place them on the floor but it’s hard to better the patterns of leaves that have fallen naturally.
Love them all. I especially like the one with the sun coming through the trees.
That’s a favourite tree, in Autumn at least. It seems to colour slightly differently each year.
Great shots and gorgeous colours – I can’t pick a favourite as they are all lovely 🙂
They complement each other well, don’t they? 🙂
I am normally pretty good about identifying maples within our region. Yours are not so easy, perhaps because they are in a different climate. The upper left seems to be a red maple of some sort. Upper right seems to be a sugar maple, or the related rock maples that is native to your region. Lower left looks like Heavenly bamboo, which is obviously not a maple. Lower right seems to be a Fremanii maple, which I am not familiar with. It is a hybrid that might be classified as a cultivar of red maple.
It does seem to be an odd one out competition, now you mention it. I was mainly thinking about Autumn eye candy, balancing and contrasting the colours of the leaves and and pairing the blue sky with the decking. These were all taken in Mississippi last Fall, rather than in England.
I automatically go to identification mode. It is part of my work.
Now I think of it, the top left was taken this year in Caton, Lancashire. I often find myself a year behind in sharing seasonal pictures as it takes a little time to get around to it, but I was quick off the mark with that one.
You have captured some great colours in this collection!
Thanks, Andrew. The gallery style of post helps to call out the contrasts and similarities.
Isn’t it wonderful? It happens every year, and yet it astounds! Looks as though that blackcurrant color snuck into that upper left-hand corner, rightly a part of this endless palette. Beautiful!
Blackcurrant really ought to be in the rainbow. It’d be a whole lot easier than trying to decide what is indigo and what violet. Where do we go to propose it, I wonder?
I wish I knew! It’s a brilliant thought!
Brilliant pictures x
