the color of autumn
We don’t get much red in autumn colors around here because the vast majority of our trees are evergreen green. One of the very few, if not the only red is our vine maples. Almost more of a shrub than a tree. Here’s a close look…. Oh, I forgot the red that comes from our poison oak, but I didn’t get close enough for a photo opp. 😉 Of course there’s the bright yellow of the aspens and some other trees or shrubs, but not much of that either.
Autumn is a second spring when every leaf is a flower.
― Albert Camus
