Welcome reader to my blog - a mixture of this and that. Now that we are living in a retirement community in downtown Columbia, MD my personal gardening activities are somewhat curtailed. I still enjoy visiting gardens, reading, watching wildlife on my walks, traveling, and occasional food commentary. Please leave a comment if you feel inspired to do so. I read every one of them.

Fall Colors Beginning


It's the tulip poplars that are showing the most color change here.  Yellows, golds and browns are the predominant shades.








Usually it the black gum trees that show up red first but  the one below is not as far along as the poplars.


The pink muhly grass is a nice background shade to the garden.



The crepe myrtle has a mix of colors.


It won't be long before the trees are fully colored beyond green and then bare.

Very pretty Fall Colors... It looks quite a bit like what we have here. I will post a Fall Color blog post on Monday....

Hope the deer and other critters are staying away.

Hugs,
Betsy

This is the most colourful season of the year. I went to Henley on Thames today to see the colours there but I was a couple of weeks too early as only a few of the trees had started to turn.
