My asian pear tree has had the most beautiful fall leaves this year so I'm playing with my scanner to preserve the colors....

Anyone else with colorful leaves to share?

You start some of the best threads, Judith!

Perhaps not typical leaves, but these were some sights around here in October.

Thanks Jocelyn and Travis...beautiful photos!

Fall was colorful here for a change and the Buffalo River trails beautiful.  

These are all from those trails except for the virginia creeper...it was along our  (almost) daily three mile walk out of town.

I need to figure out how to get pictures I took on my phone off of it.  Leaves this year have been amazing.

Here is a picture of leaves I collected for a zone 1 garden I want to start next year.

I am not sure which looks more delicious: that third crop of hay or the lamb:

The last of the colorful leaves on our Buffalo River walk a few days ago...the second is a dogwood for sure, the first may be strawberry bush

Celastraceae (Bittersweet Family)
This airy, deciduous shrub grows 6-12 ft. tall. Its ridged twigs become purplish when exposed to the sun. Pale green flowers with purple stamens have five, distinct clawed petals. Bright green, oval leaves become dark red in fall when bright red fruits open to reveal orange seeds.



I wish I had gone closer to check for sure.  We saw several  of those and dogwoods scattered through the woods...small blazes of color
