last gasp of autumn color

The burning bush is showing the effects of frost but hanging on to keep giving us autumn color.  The other deciduous tree with leaves left is the beautiful Sweet Gum whose star-shaped purple leaves, when they do fall, stand out among the browns of poplars and oaks. 


  1. Hiya Helen,

    I came by from skywatch, but got hung up by your fine collection of leaf-laundry hanging on the line :-)
    Lovely against the turquoise background.

  2. There is so much beauty even in the last gasp. You might like my small weekly meme called "Nature Notes". You can post anything and the linky goes up by Wednesday night. It is and has been very small....Michelle
