Colors of the Season

As we get deeper in October, the seasonal colors are deepening as well. I would say that my area’s autumn colors are at their peak. We’ve had a few days of above average temps and sunny weather, and today I took advantage of the situation and paid another visit to the Rhododendron Species Botanical Garden, located in Federal Way, WA. I paid a lot of attention to detail along my nature walk in the garden. There’s so many colors to see with each step at this time of year. So with that being said, here are images I captured of lots of plant species in various stages of their autumn display.

    Sassafras! I have never seen a real one before! I tried to grow them, but they dried up. It was not a good year.

  2. The color combination of picture one is extraordinary

  3. Beautiful- especially that second one.

    They’re all wonderful, but the bark in #4 drew me in. Do you have a name for it?

Thank you!
