Fertilizer Friday - Fall Glory

This Fall has been a good season. Here in Kansas our Falls are unpredictable. Last year it was a yellow and brown Fall. This year we have brilliant reds, oranges, and "almost" hot pinks in the leaves. These are all trees from our yard that we have planted. We have had just the right amount of moisture and the frost has stayed away. This week though, the wind moved in and so our beautiful trees are losing their color swiftly.
The above trees are Japanese maples that have been gorgeous to the eye.

Sweetspire looks so pretty next to the weeping evergreen.

The Burning Bush is always a brilliant red. The above is an Autumn Blaze Maple that is so pretty this year.

Here is a cherry that is a burgundy color mixed with a brilliant red.
Be sure to drop by Tootsie's place to see what is going on for Fall around the country.
