Fall Color

Happy Fall!  Many are posting photos of colorful leaves.

The leaves here will not change for a long time.

Instead, our Fall color comes from blooming plants that have woke up from their summer “sleep”, when it was just too hot to make a flower.

We don’t have flaming foliage, so these flaming tropicals will have to do.

    What lovely flowers! I’m so eager to get out and about and see what’s happening on the refuges and prairies. They’re finally opening up, and it looks like Sunday will be my day. I’m especially fond of blue mistflower, so I’m glad to be reminded of it here.

  2. Ah, the joys of living in a warm climate. NIce photos, A.G.

  4. It always impresses me how we have some of the same flowers up here, but most are very different!

    What a lovely hibiscus – like a dance gown!

  6. Love the selection! What is the blue flower – a Salvia? My joke for fall color here is there are 3 Red Maples on the edge of the swamp up the street if you want fall color that is it. What do you have there? Red and Jap Maples?

    • The Salvias are Black and Blue and I don’t know the name of the other one. That one is not happy with all the rain and not blooming as much as usual. Red Maples are not very happy here. I have one and it is not doing well. Our color (if it happens) comes from China Tallow and Sweetgum trees. This will be an interesting Fall with all our rain this year.
