November: more trees

It's a little premature to take a picture of the burning bush but I was afraid the Japanese maple would lose its leaves before the burning bush was fully red. If a better shot comes along I'll just take another picture!

What did we do before digital cameras??

Acer palmatum dissectum 'Garnet' and Euonymous alatus; the burning bush is supposedly invasive and a big no-no to plant but I didn't know that when I put it in. Besides, although it does set fruit, I've never found a seedling anywhere so I suspect it's sterile anyway.

Hi Diane, I've never found a burning bush seedling either, and we have an abundance of them planted as a hedge and as part of our foundation landscape by the previous owners. They're so pretty in the fall.

Your Japanese maples are gorgeous. I love the hybrid silver maple too. What a pretty view from your window.

I wonder if that's what we have in our parkway. The color was almost identical. Ours is totally bare now.
