Don't be fooled. Inside this thin coating of sweetness is a fiery core of total insanity.

Foliage Followup -- October 2015

For September's Foliage Followup I shared some photos of little spots of fall color that had appeared in my garden. Since then, my pin oak has just exploded with color. Lately our mornings have been foggy, but on Monday the sun came out and the bright morning light playing on the pin oak was just wonderful.













To me, that bright orange is the epitome of fall color.

  1. Hmm...maybe I need to add this tree to my ever-growing list of plants for the new place.

  2. I love Pin Oaks! Seriously, I wish the Oaks across the street were Pin Oaks (or any oak that gets good fall color), since they just turn a sad brown/yellow and then drop.

  3. I tried to grow a pin oak once, but it seemed our soil wasn't what it preferred. Either that, or it could be I should try again? I love their form!

  4. Nice shots! I love the many shades of color mixed together on this oak. Wish any of my deciduous trees were that large already.

  8. Your pin oak looks marvelous in the sun, Alison, like stained glass. I will have to get over to the woods to see how my oaks are doing. Color changes are only just getting started here.

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.
