Party (tree) in the backyard

All over town leaves are dropping and branches are sticking out their bare elbows.

Seeing the magnificent change of season expressed in multi-colored foliage has been the most unexpected present during this time in my life.

There are many, many stunning trees in the Upstate but my favorite tree is found in my own backyard. I have been waiting for it to change into its fall frock for a full month now.

I took this picture in early October.

Welcome to the party! It’s a Mardi Gras tree. My hubby says its a Clemson tree.
