Nature Notes: The state of the Nature around my house
My oaks are finally beginning to change colors. They are always the last trees in my yard to change. At this point it almost looks like the red leaves are on fire or like someone tossed some paint on a few leaves.
The bittersweet berries are one of my favorite ornamental berries in the fall and they are finally popping out their red part.
A lot of the Virginia Creeper died back from the late heat in September but some hung in there for the autumn show.
The grass plumes are starting to curl and get a wine colored tinge to them.
I like the mix with the leaves from one tree putting out some autumn colored stars above the green needles of the Pine tree.
The crepe myrtle is changing to orange and dropping its leaves. It's pink flowers would clash with its autumn leaves if they occurred at the same time.
The nandina berries are rust colored but soon will be red.
I love the way a single fall leaf looks lying on the ground in full color.
