Red Leaves



(This picture can be enlarged by clicking on it. Clicking a second time will make it full-sized.)

I know that almost all of the leaves on our trees have long since fallen to ground, but I like the look of the leaves on our dogwood tree as they turn each autumn.

This picture was taken in early October of this year.

I love dogwood trees, but alas they don't grow well in Fla. (o:

it has been many years since I have seen a flowering dogwood, i loved them when we lived in KY. they were all over the mountains. i don't remember the beautiful red of them turning but i know they did.

The red looks so beautiful, a nice reminder that our grey and brown world will be replaced by colour in the spring. :)

Dog wood turned so bright red. Mine stayed two colors all year long
Never as beautiful as this one lol

Yes indeed, the leaves are definitely off the trees in my yard. I have so MANY, that all you see on the ground is leaves. I just wait until they all fall, and mulch. Too hard to rack up.

Red leaves are beautiful. Raking them up is not so good.
