Festival of Leaves Week #9

The leaves are all gone now. But just before we had our first snowfall of the year I went out and took some photos of the leaves of the ornamental plum trees. This year they have produced the most remarkable color. We have had them lining the driveway for 20 years and this is the most vibrant color I have ever seen from them.

There is one tree that is closest to our house that even with the snow still has some leaves.

Thank you again Dawn for hosting the Festival of Leaves 2022.It was fun while it lasted. Click here to see The Day After’s entry for Week #9

      This is the first-time I have seen them so vibrant. In the spring they have lovely white blossoms.

        But no plums worth eating, if they are ornamental?

      I know and ours have been amazing this year. For us the end of autumn also means the start of winter. 🥶
