The colors are so vibrant.
The leaves are slowly falling off the trees,
just hanging on for that last show
before the temperature really dips.
I get mesmerized by the leaves dancing on
the Osakazuki Maple in our yard.
It is so much bolder then last year.
I am amazed at how long the leaves on the Japanese Maple are holding on for.
The Amur Cherry lost her leaves about 3 weeks ago,
the tree to the left.
When I look around the garden, and see those lovely
fall shades presenting themselves it is very satisfying.
And I think to myself...
WHERE CAN I PUT ANOTHER JAPANESE MAPLE??
This is a Waterfall Maple.
I am trying to train it to be a tiny bit taller.
Not for privacy, but so we can enjoy it from inside as well.
(Our windows are a bit higher so I am
working on the views from inside.)
Inside it's time for some fall nesting.
In an effort to extent the gardening season,
I've been clipping my hydrangea bushes and bringing
the blossoms in. I've also saved some lavender
to spread through the house, in hopes of extending the season.
I only have a few Thanksgiving decorations,
its Halloween that I go a little crazy with.
