One of my new Master Gardener friends has been teasing me about being drawn to any plant with red foliage this time of year. We went to a nursery and I went up to each red plant. Kind of got to be the joke of the day.
even this White Oak.
Of course this gorgeous Dogwood catches my eye every time I look out the window. The bluebirds feed on its berries. It is great to see that shock of blue emerge from the red leaves.
Even the forest floor has red leaves.
And of course this Fothergilla is becoming more and more red as the season progresses.
Even the littlest Crape Myrtle that was a volunteer in another plant's pot, is putting forth some great color.
All along the woods we have lots of Sumac. Its color ranges from orange-y red to burgundy.
