Autumn Leaves


The first day of Autumn and the beginnings of gorgeous autumn color from my yard. This photo is of my Sweet Gum tree after a little misting rain. Sweet Gum is not native to this area, but is a popular ornamental tree, used for it's form and beautiful fall color. A long row of them are planted along the south side of Mission St. between Airport Road and I-5.

Been busy for a few days so only now catching up on all these wonderful photo's of yours Jill - yes we're also heading into Autumn here in the UK but we're not getting any nice bright sunny days to show off the colours, hopefully we will soon.

Really love this one of the leaves the colours are so pretty!

Wow! Already turning up there! Those are beautiful trees, but they're famous for hurling concrete all over the place.
