Turn, Turn, Turn

Standard

We haven’t had any more snow, but are definitely at the height of Indian Summer.

With the start of cooler evenings (40s and below) the trees have started their Fall display, and what a display it is!

These are maples in the backyard.  The red one is Autumn Blaze, I think.  Tree names are not my specialty.

While maples are generally thought of as the showiest of trees in the valley, the ashes definitely hold their own.

This one marks the corner of the house, and looks rather festive next to the plum.  I wonder what their conversation is?

“Hey Plum!  When do you turn colors?”

“I don’t.  I’m colorful all year long!”

Even the crabapple tree is getting into the act.  And that wire cage on the right?  That’s to protect the rose ground cover from the rabbits.  We did some shrubbery and flower planting a couple months back, only to find that we unexpectedly put out a “Free Lunch” sign for the rabbits.

Yes, some of them are cute little bunnies that don’t eat much, but others are big jackrabbits, who I am sure belong to a gang and wear black leather jackets.
