A COLOURFUL TIME OF THE YEAR

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                           

Autumn is definitely the most colourful time of the year in my garden.  Above, fall foliage and camellias.

                                                                                                                                                                   

The dogwoods (Cornus florida) are at their peak with both the foliage and the fruits ablaze.

                                                                                      

 I just love the way this tree frames the veranda and gives me a marvelous view of the cardinals who fly in to devour the berries.

Elsewhere, the Oakleaf Hydrangeas (Hydrangea quercifolia) are in phase 3 of their 4 season show. This native is unsurpassed.

                                                                                   

Some views from the veranda…

                                                                                      

                                                                                          

                                                                                  

For more autumn beauty see Boy Fenwick’s photos on the blog Reggie Darling.  He has also captured the most incredible sunset. Enjoy!
