The Last to Fall
Sedum continues to bring 'Autumn Joy' contrasting nicely with yellows and oranges in leaves of roses, spirea and viburnum nearly let go now. Kousa Dogwood's mottled trunks frame purple Cotinus gone more red today, before dotted fruits of yellow crabapples. The dogwoods canopy another mixed palette of mauves, yellows and oranges fans out in the front garden concealing part of the barn studio. All these muted colors are the last to fall in the garden. Most let go while I was away... these shots were taken just over a week ago. Now there is a colorful carpet beneath all of the bare limbs of trees and shrubs. If you click on the images you will see the true unaltered vibrancy.
