Of course, where I live, the natural color is mostly from aspens. They look like birches, but are actually in the poplar family. They are both tough and delicate. Tip: If you ever decide to transplant or plant an aspen, be sure to mark the north side, and keep that side facing north when you put it in, or you will lose it (and I can’t guarantee you won’t lose it anyway.) Nameless, since they really do turn yellow with virtually no hint of orange, does that mean they only have one of the yellow pigments, and, if so, which one? I would guess xanthophyll for linguistic reasons, but sometimes words fail me.

Such a great place for learning & reading about trees, and their different colors in Autumn.
I love the pictures!

A delightful, educational commentary.

Thank you, Nameless for post,
and Joanne for cross-posting.

We were only having yellows and some oranges until this week when we finally had several days of nice sun and now (until the leaves fall in the wind tonight and this weekend) have beautiful reds, too!

Thanks Nameless and for the cross-post Joanne. Lucked out with color changes beginning during our recent Ireland, No. Ireland and Scotland trip--timing had us seeing first in Scotland where I noted the ferns and heather also did color changes (three colors dominated for heather) so all parts of the hills were participating.

Thank you so much for this year’s Ode to Autumn, Nameless. Now living in a country which has few indigenous seasonal leaf-shedding trees, and none in the subtropical area where we live now, the gorgeous display of autumn colours is now lost to us, and your post has really made up for that.

When asked if there is anything I miss living in Queensland now, the seasonal changes and in particular the autumn colours now come to mind, as I knew they would. That and twilight.

Wow...lovely photos. So fascinating to see the changing colors of the gorgeous trees. I love learning about Mother Natures treasures.
Thanks Joanne

Thank you for the wonderful post. The pictures are great.
What a nice reminder that there is much beauty to behold if we but take the time.
