Fall Colors in the Winter
I was running some errands on Friday when I passed this yard with all the trees turning a golden color so I knew I needed to turn around and get a photo. The trees turn colors much later here in the desert southwest so at a time when most of you are looking at bare trees, we are just starting to see some gorgeous color.
Yesterday I took the road through the Biltmore Estates to get home and I had to do a quick U-turn to go back and get some photos of these beauties that are turning a brilliant red. They were all clustered together in a little median strip in the center of the road.
I don't get to see too many that turn this color here in the desert so I had to stop and walk around under their crimson branches.
I took this shot facing east so you could see the stormy looking skies we've been experiencing the past few days. It's been quite a change from the sunshine we had earlier this week.
I have a new post on Sharon's Sojourns today. A glimpse of fall colors on the other side of the country is on hand.
