Some fall color

Better fall color than I usually coax from my trees. Trident Maple and Boston Ivy accent.

Lovely John!

I'm a little envious - many of my trees are in panic mode at present.  Some have dropped all their leaves while green, others have broken bud with fresh new growth.

The fires in California came precariously close to our home.  All is fine here, so no reason for concern, but neighboring communities have been destroyed.  Albeit, beating that further is not what interests me.  I am interested in how my potted trees have responded.

Typically at this time of year my maples will be coloring up; the larches yellowing; and the oaks bronzing.  And yet with the normal weather pattern disrupted by weeks of dense choking smoke from the fires my trees seem to have gone haywire.  The Acer capillipes has sprouted new growth as if its spring, even though at our elevation and latitude frost is impending, the Acer tridentata has run for hiding and even having had a full head of foliage has shed it all and ran to dormancy, the Acer japonica cannot figure out which way to run and has done both - shedding mature leaves yet breaking new buds.  The larch has dropped all of this years needles, but the winter buds have broken and bright new growth is peeking out.  I suppose I can have solace in the pines as they are fire adapted trees - they have changes not at all.  

All me best to you and yours and to your lovely trees!
David B.

Nice to hear from you, David. I am glad you were spared further damage and I hope your trees will rebound as the seasons progress!

Fall color has been conspicuous by its absence here in SE Wisconsin... too dry and too warm for too long...
we are now suddenly sodden and concurrently cold...

My little Carolina Hornbeam from Arthus Joura is giving an effort though...
(tree needs attention, i know Rolling Eyes sorry AJ)

Great colours. It seems that the weather was quite favourable in many places.

@John - I like the way you play with the light on your images. It reminds me of a special and a bit rare light that you can experience before or after the storm. The combination of dark storm clouds and sharp sunlights. It is called "a black light" around the place I live.

Small (11 inch above the pot) Trident maple over rock. A little slow to lose its leaves this year.
Coincidentally, I believe this pot is also from Erin Pottery!
