In recent blogs I have made references to the sad fact that as winter approaches, the brilliant colors that accent the landscape, are rapidly disappearing. Yesterday, I happened upon a couple of stragglers to the trend that are continuing to be brilliant, despite the late season. Above, you can see the leaves of a mountain ash tree.
The photo below shows the leaf of a geranium (Geranium macrorrhizum, I think). It is a plant that because of its vigor has become a pest in our flower garden, but the insects love it, and it does sport some amazingly colored leaves in the fall.
