Our World: Signs of Autumn

One of the first signs of Autumn in our yard is the red leaves on our dogwood tree after the season’s first cold spell.  As you can see, the trees behind the dogwood tree haven’t started to turn yet.

Red dogwood leaves against a blue sky, Fairfield Glade, Tennessee. October 2, 2011.

I like the way the sunlight brings out the red of the leaves.  I think these leaves look especially beautiful against the blue sky.

    I wish our trees turned more autumn colors here. Love the second photo against that blue sky!

    For a long time I would see these leaves, and the berries and didn’t know what they were. I think it was Betsy’s blog that once showed a picture and a light bulb went off! They are stunning.

    i love those red leaves against the blue sky! my poor little dogwood has only a few leaves left!

    Sourwood trees and Dogwood trees are the first to give us color. Our color has really increased in the past week. Unfortunately we are now having wind and rain which will cause premature dropping of a lot of the turning leaves.

    I really like the second photo also…beautiful against the blue sky.

  17. Carletta Says:

    I was away from home for two weeks and seeing the difference was astonishing. It’s hard to believe in just a short time the leaves will all be gone.
    Lovely how you caught the light on the leaves in the second shot!

    I cannot wait to see colors here. You always start earlier than we do.

  19. Judy Says:

    But then, I think all leaves look best with a background of clear blue skies!

    Great photo. I love the red color, because this autumn we here not so much red color, but yellow. Sigh.

  21. Loren Says:

    Oh gosh! Your tree is sooo pretty! I just LOVE all the different colors that fall brings us! No matter the color they are all so vibrant!

    Great shot George!
