Colors of Fall
My enthusiasm for the gardens wilted with last summer’s record-setting heat. And now, from the den’s picture window 2 storeys above ground, all I see are thousands of dull reddish-brown oak leaves (will seem like millions when I start raking), gray tree trunks, and some evergreen camellias and azaleas. But a walk through the gardens reveals some spectacular colors of the season and gives me hope for spring.
Japanese maple ‘Bloodgood’
Camellia or sasanqua?
Leaves of the Japanese maple ‘Orange Dream’ turned from green to red virtually overnight
Japanese maple ‘Sango Kaku,’ or coral bark – a favorite – I have four of them now
Canna lily ‘Bengal Tiger’
The leaves on our neighbors’ beautiful maple turn red, orange, yellow and green simultaneously
Salvia ‘Mystic Spires Blue’
