Autumn Colors

The turning time is in full swing. Entire mountain tops have changed to shades of orange.

There are other mums at this time of year, many mums perhaps, but I have been seeing the Pink Sheffie Mum in so many places I go. I think it is being gladly shared.

There will be more than enough of the Yellie Mum to divide and spread come spring. It finishes blooming so late it may be best to wait til then.

Maples trees come in many colors. This area was thinned last year of misshapen and poorly placed trees. It isn't quite so dramatic this fall. Not to worry. Baby trees will grow tall.

The other high spot has begun to turn. It takes two high spots to make me the low spot, high on a North Carolina mountain top.

It's a magical time of year when the world is ablaze with color, the nights are pleasantly cool and the sunny days are just perfect.

Is that a hickory that has turned the gorgeous shade of yellow?

That's a maple Sallysmom.

Lisa I think this year we are low on reds compared to others. Still colorful though.
