Autumn in Michigan




Well our leaves are starting to show their glorious fall hues and I wanted to share a bit with you.
The bright red is our burning bushes which goes from a green to pink and to red. It is really a georgous sight to see. The close up shows you how it's getting to that bright red and the tree on the side of the road is at it's rusty red hue which will soon become a bright red as it is a maple.
Love this time of year and thought you Southerners might enjoy seeing what you miss during Autumn.

Love the colors! I miss seeing all the reds! We get yellows and oranges but not a ton of reds! TFS!

Very pretty! Thanks for sharing the nice pictures! The leaves here are just beginning to change. I look forward to the brilliant colors to come. I just don't like what follows... A long, cold and dreary winter.
