Vibrant fall colors

The Eastern U.S. is fortunate to have deciduous temperate forests that display beautiful fall colors. From maples, hickories, oaks, sweetgums, black gums, sourwood, and poplars, with a myriad of other species, our deciduous trees put on a spectacular fall show.

An early morning walk found plenty to admire.

  1. Your header photo is so beautiful. That sourwood sure is a deep red isn't it? I would love one in my garden. I hear they grow slowly. Need to find a spot soon.
