I'm waiting............


Sadly, our neighbor cut down the trees that shed these leaves. It was beautiful while it lasted.

Beautiful, colorful leaves!

What kind of tree was that?! I think I'd like to plant one, actually.

I was wondering what kind of tree was it that had such pretty leaves and petals?

Chinaberry........they're not native to this area, but they sure do like it. Kind of like me.
The trees are beautiful in the Autumn...they're about the only trees down here with good color.
Some can be PLUM purple, some golds, reds, orange.............the one in our back yard usually turns yellow and the leaves sometimes don't fall off until the end of January.

I thought it looked more like flower petals. Jim and I tried to plant a couple of those trees, I think...they didn't make it...too small to start in such a cold place.
Our leaves are already fallinggggggg.

they ARE beautiful leaves......I can hardly wait!!!
Yes, Kim I know what your leaves are doing right now. I also know that in the ditches in front of your house there are rose-hips. I wish I were there to pick some. And drink coffee with cream.
