Ruby Tuesday - Autumn Red

It has been down in the 40*F range at night which is enough to trigger some of the trees to show their autumn colors.  But since we have not yet had a frost the roses and many other flowering plants are still blooming.  It is a colorful time of year in Tulsa.

Up here in Nw England, the trees and color have peaked and passed. Now that we are getting freezing nights, the leaves fall, too. Nicely you have the warm enough temps to still admire the ruby foliage. Wonderfully captured!

Great picture. Even on overcast days they look like they are glowing within.

Ah, lovely. We were discussing a few weeks ago what causes the color change - Rambling Woods aka Michelle looked it up and came up with temperatures drop, temperatures rise. Of course there was more - I was concerned because we had a dry summer. This is a gorgeous display. We still have some colorful trees, but some have already shed their leaves.

Excellent capture. Our fall colors are not going to be that exciting this year. Too hot, too dry, too windy.

Hey Cousin... here in N.C. the color is peaking now in the Smoky Mountains. Just returned from a visit up there and it looks like God spilled the paint. --gg

Gorgeous! So your fall is about a month after our fall. We already have bare trees up North...
