It's Wednesday, and it's time for some poppin' fresh fall color.
Here in the Triple Cities of upstate New York, the colors are a bit behind because of the mild weather, but I suspect we will have a killing frost everywhere by the middle of next week.
For now, our first wave of color, featured the last couple of Wednesdays, has vanished. Here and there the second wave is beginning.
Here are a couple of different shades of red. This was a little tall for a Euonymus many call "burning bush" but I think this is what this Binghamton tall shrub was.
And these - I think - are wild grapes. My wildflower expert has given me some sources to research, which was pretty hard with the leaves dead. These aren't in trees, but rather are along a rocky stretch of ground in our local Otsiningo Park.
We should end up having color for another couple of weeks with the slowdown brought by our mild weather. Eventually, with a killing frost, the colors should really pop.
Do you live in an area with fall color? How is your color doing?
