Ruby Tuesday In The Fall #2




I had gone to visit my Mom again on Monday and took some more photos of the leaves left on her trees. Two maples in her front yard which are thirty five or forty years old have lost almost all their leaves.

Lovely West Virginia foliage. I know that autumn leaves look the same everywhere, but in your state (and it's been quite a while since I've been there...) with the quite hilly terrain, the colors seem to reach to the sky. 'Wild Wonderful' is quite an apt description!

Carletta, splendid RED leaves! Oh my! They are so beautiful! Happy Ruby Tuesday! :)

I especially like your single red leaf holding on for dear life.
You found some real pretty trees.

Our leaves don't turn until the end of November or in December around here. They are pretty then as those trees mix in with the predominate oaks and evergreens which stay green all winter.

Nice Ruby Tuesday post. I really like your leaves. So many of your photos are so wonderful. I love the black rings on the trunks of the submerged trees. Thanks for a great blog.

I did leaves, too, so come look if you have a chance.

It seems that the leaves are starting to change and fall faster or sooner in south. Our trees are just about to start changing colors, no leaves falling yet :o)
