Autumn colour, Fall color

Post  Treebeard on Sat Oct 10, 2009 11:25 am

... a thread to cover all options Smile Please feel free to add to it.

Here is my Zelkova serrata in August, just starting to turn.


...and now, October. A super bright red.

Aye, it's been some time. I went through that thing where you lose a little interest and then it comes back again, strong. I think you know what I mean.

Missing U already

Post  fiona on Mon Oct 12, 2009 1:42 pm

Well if we're in the "you show me yours ..." mode:



My root-over-rock Trident which I can never decide if I like or not. I do like its autumn display this year though and I actually managed to get a pic before the wind blew it all away.

(Chris - I like your polyglot attempt but the English teacher in me can't bring myself to missing out the "u" in colour. So I compromise on "Fall Colour" Rolling Eyes )

If you decide not to like it, there's always an empty spot in my garden cheers

Sorry to be so long getting back to you: that dang thing called work got in the way again!

I'd be lying if I said I knew for certain but I am fairly sure (99%) it is a Walsall Studio Ceramics one. It is nice though isn't it? I still think the tree needs a slight twist round in it but that'll need to wait until Spring.

Shohin colours

Post  Gæst on Tue Oct 13, 2009 5:59 am

Autumn colours just starting here. Weather turns colder, and more strength to the colours will appear the next weeks. One of my favourite times of the year. Here a few Mame and Shohin starting the show.

Regards
Morten

Beautiful shohins!

This is a new experience for me. I have never truly appreciated fall color until my current bonsai obsession. Now I see an amazing deciduous tree and wonder, what would this look like in fall? Beautiful trees folks.

I think I'll wait until the sun comes out again (if it ever does) to take more pics but here's some color on a small crape myrtle.

Stunning pics from Walter and Morten. I'm quite embarrassed to post my humble offerings after those.

Some more autumn colour from west central Scotland - currently bathed in sunshine and temperatures of 16C. This is the best display the Ginkgo has put on, and curiously the Acer has only just started to turn despite evey other maple in the garden (bonsai and garden shrubs alike) having already fallen to the Fall and lost their leaves.

Two small cotoneasters.

Height 5". Pot by Erin Pottery


Height 7". Pot by Walsall Studio Ceramics


This guy always looks like he's dying on me but then comes back strong the following year. Amazing what a drop of Ardbeg can do!
