OH, thanks. Mazzard. I will fix that.
They must like the fallen cherries.
Already Remembrance Day Nov 11 - and some fall colour remains
Sédum Autumn Glory with a fantastic short aster - it spreads but i don’t mind (it’s not rampant and it takes summer drought ). I see a leaf of California poppy in lower part of photo too.
Thé Halloween Hitchcock photo is a street tree (cherry I think?) that shed its leaves to reveal someone’s twiggy tree house nest ... it’s approx 10 inch diam so maybe a crow?
EDIT CORRECTION - I made a mistake above - it is Autumn Joy (not Autumn glory)
You must mean "autumn joy" which is itself a translation of 'Herbstfreude' and not the actual cultivar name. That cultivar name being 'Herbstfreude'.
yes thank you - you are absolutely correct - Autumn Joy
It is interesting because in some spots in this garden - what is labelled as Autumn Joy is pale pink - so i wonder if summer drought or sun-vs-shade hours or other influence might be factor.
I am not so keen on the pink in autumn --- the deep velvet red burgundy is stunning. The leaves in summer on this plant are normally pale green. It dies back in winter and re-grows in spring. This plant is approx 8 yrs old.
EDIT - i meant to add that the size of this plant is approx 1 foot spread by about 16 inch tall in a soil border (ie not a container) --- for me - in containers - I have tried the variegated leaf version of Sedum - and I am not successful. Not sure why not.
edit - here is an interesting article about this plant - i like the term "Chelsea Chop" - http://www.sbgardendesign.co.uk/2013/09/30/sedum-herbstfreude/?LMCL=HbAfT6
Remembrance Day Canada - and some semi-wild (ie not planted by humans) bright red wild leaves on the side of a mall parking lot in suburban Vanc BC
Various species fr right to left in the main photo which I think is the 3rd pic in the series:
A holly (ilex ; invasive here)
Some sort of bush willow approx 30 feet tall w small yellow leaves (autumn)
A native dogwood like BC emblem (the tall skinny twig of a young tree in foreground)
Foreground trees with bark are Douglas firs
Background in the forest incl wild cherries and maybe some cottonwood
Foreground green twigs are an invasive broom plant - bad news
I think in mid-ground there is a red huckleberry - it’s deciduous and typical of older forests (vaccinium)
Foreground - autumn color on blackberry - thé invasive Himalayan I think.
And a few wind blown big leaf maple leaves caught in the bushes
Bright red small tree shrub - top photo on this series - what is that ? - it caught my eye fr across the parking lot - it was glowing w rich autumn colour
On Oct 12 Cdn Thanksgiving I posted some mall tree pictures that member Ron B id as liquidambar I think - the tree is at a mall in suburban Vanc BC
So I happened by on American Thxgiving and this is what same tree looks like now - no leaves - lots of teasel-like fruit and — a nest! I am guessing a crow nest.
