Fridays' Favorite


Welcome, lets' take a stroll around the garden to see the leaves of the trees,
 shrubs and perennials that are turning shades of red, yellow and orange.



This is an oak tree seedling in the woodland garden.
A wonderful shade of red-orange.




The Cornus alternifolia (Pagoda Dogwood) is burgandy red.






The leaves of the sedum are turning red and look this one has decided to flower again.
It usually flowers in the middle of the summer, this is a welcome surprise.




We end our stroll with a view of the golden leaves of Hosta ' Frances William'.
Thank you for joining me and have a great weekend.

I am joining Tootsie at Tootsie Time for Fertilizer Friday.
You must stop by to see what others have blooming in their garden.

It's such a pleasure to stroll around your garden and see all these fabulous Autumn colours. I enjoyed it so much ... makes me wish we could see such colours here.

Hi Jen, That Dogwood is stunning – they are such marvelous plants and trees, aren't they? I have to admit that I took out all the hostas on our property when we moved in. I HATE slugs. (If anyone reading doesn't know, slugs love hostas.) But I bet your garden looks wonderful with all these variations of color. Wishing you a great weekend. – g

The color of the summer flowers has been replaced with vibrant leaves!

You take such wonderfully composed pictures. Perhaps one day you'll do a coffee table book? I love the fall colours but ours are almost gone and as I was looking for colour outside yesterday it felt like I was on a scavenger hunt. Sunshine Always!

Dear Jennifer, What beautiful autumn colours you show here. The Cornus Alternifolia is such an attractive shrub and its October colouring is really wonderful.
