Fallen leaves

Many of the leaves in our garden have fallen now, although there are still holdouts.

The two white oaks in back still have all their leaves, and one of them, amazingly, is still almost all green although the other has leaves that are a deep maroon color.

The crape-myrtle above my potting bench is a brilliant orange-red. Spectacular.

The big-leaf magnolia (Magnolia macrophylla) is now leafless, but on the ground, they're still lovely.

  1. Interesting about the white oaks, I wonder what the difference between them might be.
    I think if you have a Magnolia macrophylla and its leaves fall, cleaning up the fallen leaves would be like picking up pieces of legal paper. I am amazed how large those leaves are.

Please share your thoughts. I enjoy hearing from fellow nature observers, as well as whomever else drops by.
