Fall Paintbrush Magic

You go to sleep one night and everything is green
and you wake to this...
My Japanese Bloodgood tree.

So bright and spectacular

My Japanese Coral Bark Maple. In the 
winter the coral bark is gorgeous against the snow

Another Coral Bark by the pond.

Can't remember this maples name but what a sunny
show it puts on

Leaves of the Bloodgood.

I supose if I told you I actually took my watercolors out
late one night and painted these trees...... you
wouldn't believe me. Nay didn't think so!
Have a great weekend. Get out and enjoy the
 colors mother nature has created
just for you.

Omg.....stunning. Such a variety of colours, your yard must look gorgeous. We have either green or brown leaves or occasional yellow. :-)

They are spectacular! Have you ever preserved any just to get you through Thanksgiving? Gosh, they'd look stunning strewn upon your dining table.

OMG those trees are gorgeous! You must do a watercolor painting of that? Our trees here in GA haven't turned much yet but I love love love this time of year.
