Contrary to popular belief California does have fall color, and it's pretty good too! Birches, maples, and crape myrtles all are displaying their fall show in Rebecca Sweet's garden. The view of her 'Forest Pansy' Redbud really makes me wish the fall webworms hadn't munched on mine. Take a trip to the Bay area of California to see what color is at Rebecca's blog Gossip in the Garden
The fall colors have been peaking here in Tennessee for the last several days and you can see why I like fall in Tennessee from Elizabeth's photos. Classic fall color trees like maples, sweet gum, and tulip poplars are on display turning an Autumn day into a virtual museum of art which definitely makes Life Worth Living
This time we'll venture out to East Tennessee to see what fall color Frances finds! Colorful maples among arborvitae, Euonymous europaeus
, and Muhlenbergia capillaris
are all showing resplendent fall colors whether through foliage or fruit.
I find it impossible not to stop to observe the peeling bark of a river birch whenever I pass by and maybe you will too at FaireGarden
