Before I take you into the next area of the new garden I wanted to share the beauty of our fall foliage.
Sunday afternoon we took a drive to the Pig to get gas for the boat. I took my camera with me and was able to get some photos of the wonderful fall colors.
Sassafras albidum --in its full glory. I love the reds, oranges and peachy colors.
Native Dogwood- Cornus florida, gotta love the red!
All along the roadside is Sumac. I believe it is Winged or Shining Sumac-Rhus copallina, again a brilliant red fall color.
And of course we can't forget all the yellows in the landscape. I have a number of Carya around me, haven't ID-ed all of them yet. Some of the Sweet Gum are in their yellow phase as well as some of the red maple.
Be sure to check out The Fall Color Project 2010 over at Growing the Home Garden where every Friday there are more links to fabulous fall foliage all over.
