Featuring Fall

from the front yard,
Some of my favorite leaves are the bushes that turn red, and having one by the driveway is a treat. Historically this area gets its first serious cold snap just in time to ruin trick-or-treating. But this year we got one unseasonably early and then it warmed up again. Somehow this caused the red leaves to turn first but the color never got very bright. (It also caused the grapes to freeze on the vine before the flavor was in. Rotted them into such a nasty mess even the birds won't touch them.) The yellow color always seems to thrive.
