Finally seeing Red!

Yesterday was the last nice day for the extended forecast. I thought it would be like a last chance summer dance to go out in search of red foliage.

We don't get the brilliant colors like the east coast, but I did manage to find some color.



 The magnolia seed pods were red on one side of the house, and brown on the other. Not sure why, but found them to be very interesting.
 The berries are out on this plant, although it reminds me more of Christmas than fall.

Pretty reds! We didn't have red stick around too long, most everything was yellow then brown, and now everything is almost gone (already)!

Barbara said...

The Magnolia seed pods are so interesting. I love the color and the editing you did is fine too. My neighbor has Magnolia trees - I'm going to check them out!

Lovely trees and I didn't know that is what a Magnolia seed looked like. Great info, thanks. I discovered you via FotoFriday and I'd like to invite you to come to my place and see what you think. My link # is 28 I think.

We don't get much Fall colors either. This is pretty, and seed pods are cool.

Thanks for sharing with Foto Friday,

gorgeous reds!! i love the magnolia seed pod! Magnolias are my favorite tree. We have a magnolia that can withstand our northeastern winters, though we have to wrap it with burlap every winter to protect it fro the wind. i can barely wait til spring to unwrap it again!
