Focus: Fabulous Fall Fothergilla

A couple of days ago, in my post “Turning Over an Old Leaf,” I presented some of the results of a study that I made of single autumn leaves, photographed in considerable detail.  One of my followers sent an appreciative note today and included a comment that he had never heard of a Fothergilla.  It’s one of our favorite plants, as it develops the most outrageous, flaming color at this time of year, and the color lasts longer than on most other plants.  As it happens, I did a few more studies of it while it was at its prime, a little less than two weeks ago, and I’ll take this opportunity to present two of them, in hopes of introducing it to others of you and, hopefully, to help to increase its popularity.  In the first photo below, it’s the one growing just below the left window.

    Happy to see my search for knowledge has opened a door. Here in Jersey everything has gone brown except for all off the Pine trees. Love the colors from the plants and house mixing together.

  2. Nothing like autumn colours, beautiful images
