The thinking was the incredibly hot summer in Eastern North Carolina had pretty much bashed any hope for vibrant color this fall. Not So! If anything, it’s turned up the color intensity. Those are Bradford Pear Trees which line the eastern leg of the circular drive around the compound here on the farm. I don’ t recall them being this red this long in previous years. Out in the woods, the Red Oaks are puttting on their own show.
No, I have not been messing with color saturation here. What you see is what is there. It seems the color peak has been reached for the trees located within the compound here but out in the woods the color seems to be maybe a week behind. Perhaps it has something to do with the density of the growth there. Whatever the reason, we’re enjoying the extended show. See you next time on most of this same blog.
