Leaf04 How about a fall festival of foliage where we post photos of leaves?

It's a great time of year... you can't hardly go outside without running into something that's putting on a show. Here's a few I really liked but.... I'm still going through photos.

Good idea for a thread.

I'll play along. I just took this today:

Hope that this Virginia Creeper (Parthenocissus quinquefolia) will do! Taken recently in the Shenandoah National Park, on one of nature's most perfect days.

Some leaves from Maryland's Eastern Shore, where autumn is just beginning.

Nice! The contrasting blue berries and the rock face just add to the color.

We only seem to be about a week or so ahead of you--based on the color I'm seeing in your pictures.

Sassafras is one of my favorites...and the one I planted a few years ago is now almost as tall as me. Yay! (Too bad the other one I planted that year was eaten down by a rabbit and I ended up losing it.)

I'd take your signature line into consideration on this one. It doesn't look like sycamore to me--the leaf shape for one, and the color for another...I was going to say maple, but they have leaves arranged oppositely, if I remember correctly...and from what I see of the picture, they look like they may be alternate.

Veddy veddy nice!!!!!! This time of year really is the best in the eye candy department!!!

Here's a few photos I took at a little jewel of a fen in Ohio. It's called the Jackson Bog for some reason but it's actually a fen. Go figure but either way.... it was a super high-quality site that's being maintained!!! I'd like to see it in late spring.... I really think it'd be awash in life at that time of year.

I am so envious of all those lovely photos! Down here, highs are still in the 80's (at least 'til tomorrow) and no fall color to be found. Beautiful leaf color here depend a lot on the temps and rain amounts; I remember a lot of drab brown autumns in the past---maybe we will get lucky this year. Hedgerow, your shot of the crimson Virginia Creeper with berries blew me away! Mine sometimes get a mottled yellow and green; I have seen a few turn scarlet, but nothing like those in your photo!
