We have been having good cooperation among the weather deities, as rainfall, day time, and night time temperatures have been nearly ideal for the production of vivid fall leaf coloration in this area. The photograph below shows the progress that has occurred since my last post on the subject of fall colors.
You may recall from a previous post entitled Landscaping My Way – Installment #1 that I have taken pains to preserve patches of dwarf sumac in some of the clearings on the ranch. The photograph above shows why I save the sumacs – they are the beautiful bright red plants that you see at the base of the hills above, and I revel in their vivid splendor this time of the year.
I will continue to post periodic updates on the fall colors out here, as long as they continue to improve. A bright, sunny day is forecast for Saturday, so maybe I will have the opportunity to take some nice pictures.
