Beautiful, Alice! I also love to take pictures of flowers and plants, besides animals and landscapes. Every time of the year has its own charm!

This is a place on the edge of town where I like to go to walk.

I think this is Poison Oak, but the leaves are pretty.

I only just realized I could get the dates I took pictures, not just when I uploaded them to my computer from my Flickr account so I could put these trees into the proper order. They are really pretty, in the Fall when I walked past them I often see people snapping pictures.


Yesterday I went shopping in the rain, when I got out of the store the sun was shinning and trees were glowing and the sky was dark, dark grey. I was so sad I did not have a camera. I gave a thumbs up to a couple snapping pictures with their phone. I was a bit envious.

Beautiful pictures of the tree change, Alice. The owner of the tree have a lot of work to do though, to remove all the leaves. that is, if they do so. They say it´s good for he lawn to let the leaves remain in the ground.

Oops I did not answer. The owner likes to work in the lawn and here we can just rake leaves into the street in big piles and the city comes and sweep them up. They take them to a recycle center, so it is not too bad. Once I caught kids playing in the piles and that really scared me, because I could image a car running over the pile of leaves for fun, not realizing that there were children playing.

But they survived :loveshower:

Winter?

This was taken on a walk the weekend before Christmas

These are my sweet gum trees this afternoon! 10 years ago, all the leaves had fallen off before Christmas. They were usually some of the last Sweet gums to lose their leaves. The leaves only really started to fall the week before last when we had a wind storm.

I will need to pick up my own leaves and either put them in the compost or use them as mulch as the city stops picking them up at the end of December.

Yes Felis, if they are not the exactly same, they are in the same family. In my photo the seeds did not fall out and instead sprouted. I saw several heads with green on the top and nothing on the bottom -- I guess the lower seeds fell out. I had never seen that before.

It looks really strange, I have also never seen anything like that! Good shot! :thumbs:
