A photo a week: Red

I don”t like red all that much, so I was surprised to see how many pictures I have where it is the star. These were all taken last April, most of them in China, where red is auspicious.

Fall Leaves

Vegetal Growth in my yard today: Notice that I focus on fall leaves not the weeds and unmown grass.

Due to our relatively protected location our Japanese maple is usually a bit later than many trees in changing color. It is a tree of many colors and varies from year to year. Here are some pictures from today:

I have a “thing” for hardy cyclamen. The variegated leaves are so charming. I was delighted to notice that it is starting to spread. I noticed a few single leaves here and there among the fallen maple leaves today when I was sweeping the walk today.  Yeay!

Happy fall to all!
