Fall color

We usually think about fall color in leaves; in Eastern North America, we have an abundance of deciduous trees that illuminate our landscapes with colors varying from yellow to red.

But on a 'fall color walk' today, I pointed out many more 'fall colors' -- those of flowers and fruits, especially, but also of foliage of annuals and perennials that we don't normally think about as 'fall color.'

It was interesting -- fall color (in terms of leaves) is just now coming on.

  1. I like the changing colors, I use it as a way to identify different plants in the woods. Interesting to see who is in there. I have lots of wild flowers blooming along the road side as well. Guess that will be my next area of study....I know so few.

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