Foliage Followup -- September 2015

It's hard to believe that Fall is nearly here. But my garden knows.

The leaves on the pin oak are starting to turn.

Some are bright red

Others are orange

The oakleaf Hydrangea is turning as well

And the 'Red Wing' Viburnum trilobum

Although technically it's not Fall quite yet, the plants are getting ready.

Pam at Digging hosts Foliage Followup every month on the day after Garden Bloggers Bloom Day. Check out her post here, and don't forget to check out links in the comments from other garden bloggers who are also celebrating the role of foliage in the garden.

I thought I would edit this to make it part of Anna's Wednesday Vignette. Once a week, bloggers share a picture. You can see Anna's Wednesday Vignette post here, and be sure to check out the links in the comments.

  1. The signs are here too Alison. Lovely autumnal colour you've shared with us today.

  2. I'm seeing signs of fall, too, including tule fog over the lake near my parents' house most mornings. Pity we don't live close enough to see it from the house.

  3. I do like autumn but there are few signs of it here apart from the witch hazel which is looking rather nice

  4. I could hug you for saying "Fall is nearly here" rather than "it's fall!" as so many people are. As a certified summer lover the distinction is vital to my mental well being.

  6. You are right - we are not quite there yet. I can't help it, but I think we still have at least a month left of warm weather. Even if the light doesn't cooperate all the way...

  7. Wow, you have a lot of "almost fall" color! Other than a shift in the late afternoon light - and this week's surprising rain, making the wettest September in SoCal in 75 years - I've really seen no sign of fall here yet.

  8. I suspect that what color we do have this year will be earlier than usual. so many plants got exhausted by the hot dry summer that they are ready to be done.

  9. Such wonderful colours are formed when leaves are turning, each season brings it's own beauty and is to be welcomed.

  10. Very pretty. Depressing, from the point of view of another summer lover, but undeniably pretty.

  11. I do love the warm colors of autumn, pumpkin patches, ripe squash and gourds, Indian corn, the smell of cider in the air. Too bad that it's followed by that season that begins with W! Your foliage is looking very nice. Do you think that because of the stressful summer, the fall colors will be more intense this year?

Gardening is a solitary activity. But blogging about it is a social phenomenon! I don't make money from my blog by advertising, or use it to drive customers to a business. If you liked my post, or my writing or photography, or even just one picture or turn of phrase, I'd love to hear from you. That's how I get paid.
