Garden Blogger Fall Color Project: From Tennessee to the Blue Ridge Mountains

Today is a great day for fall color here in Tennessee. I went outside a few minutes ago and took some pictures for my Garden Blogger Fall Color Project Post which will come later this week. We also have a hat trick of fall color from several Tennessee bloggers!

Peaceful and tranquil beauty grace the grounds of Gail's Garden, the blogger who gardens in Clay and Limestone. Golden yellows of the leaves join the grasses and seed heads of her fall garden in a showcase of fall. The yellows really come alive against the blue background of a rainless sky. Fall color has come to Nashville, TN!

Frosts, fothergillas, and fall foliage abound at Frances' Faire Garden. Coral bark maples, red maples, and Japanese maples (Acer palmatum dissectum ‘Crimson Queen’) fill my fall color post maple quota (to me maples are a must!) The photograph of her disrobing dogwoods and slope garden makes one understand why her garden is a truely Faire Garden!

Although fall color hasn't quite reached Georgia, Skeeter just couldn't wait to find fall color! She traveled to the Blue Ridge Mountains in search of the elusive fall foliage and found much more than just colorful trees. Among the reds and yellows of the deciduous trees and the evergreen foliage of the pines and cedars she found a hidden treasure. I won't spoil the surprise as Skeeter takes us In the Garden, in the Shenandoah National Forest!
