Hanging On with Bright Colors and Some Out of the Norm

This tree is hanging in there. It doesn't want to let go of its beauty but is showing signs of weakening, given into the inevitable....its winter look.

The Burning Bush is staying tough. Of course it is somewhat protected from the winds and cold but its days too are numbered.

A color that is not normally considered a fall color so much. This bush gets lots of little white flowers on each branch which turn into a small berry. The purple berry stays through the winter and then in March the berries start to turn dark brown to black. The birds feast on them, many are Robins, and by mid to late April all is gone and it is time to trim the plant back to about six inches above the ground.
