Fall Colors.....or Not


This colorful tree sitting next to the equally colorful Saguaro Hotel in Scottsdale looks like it's bursting with fall color.


But on closer inspection what looks like red leaves turns out to be red berries.  I think this might be a Brazilian Pepper Tree.

I would say you're 100% correct Sharon. Have just been reading that in some countries it's considered an invasive species but at the same time bees love it, so that can't be a bad thing :)

I think the colors are wonderful! And I love the different hues on the hotel.

When those of us who live in the south see color on a tree in the fall, we must never question our eyes...enjoy! :) It's stunning!

I remember one year searching for autumn leaves in Phoenix. There were very few! I'll bet birds have a heyday with these berries!

I hope the birds like the berries! My dad has been in the hospital so I Haven't been able to check out any post but your Thanksgiving looks like it was great!

The building seems to have a hot pepper theme to go with it.

That tree really looks great with the hotel. Brazilian pepper is an invasive species in many places, but maybe in the Southwest, where there's not a lot of water, it can't spread without irrigation...?
