Beautiful, Linda!

Liisa

Such gorgeous fall color! Your place looks ready for Halloween. FYI, your post title made me laugh out loud for certain.

Gayle Madwin

Flowers or not, your garden is still awfully pretty!

Thanks for stopping by and commenting, Barbara and Liisa. I just stayed up late enough for Carol to post and me to be able to make a link. Now I can go to bed since I've visited the other early posters!

This is not already brilliant fall color? It certainly is by central Texas standards. Who needs fall flowers when your trees go out like a bonfire every year? Beautiful!

Xan Nelson

This falls under the category "Wish I'd Thought of That!" Leaf day is a very clever take on Bloom Day! And your pictures are beautiful!

Bonnie

Breathtaking color! I just wish we could have that fall color down in TX.

I think we're out of luck this year for fall color, or, to put it another way, this is as good as it gets. At least you have quite a few brilliantly colored trees. Love the Stewartia - I'm going to have to find room for at least one of those.

Jean

Linda, I think what you have right now is gorgeous. Just remember how beautiful it looks to us southerners! But you're right, it's been one weird season after another this year.

Thanks for all your comments. I admit we did some selective shooting so you don't see the trees that have limp green leaves that won't color up this year. But what we do have is pretty gorgeous — especially in this greenish rainy light. MMD — the Stewartia is a great tree with really marvelous fall color. One of my favorites.

Nicola

Looks like pretty good fall colour to me! I love the names of the trees - ginko, sugar maple, redwood etc.

Gail

Flowers are transient but trees, their structure, the bark and hopefully for a little while their leaves sure are perfect! I agree with Jean! Your garden looks beautiful to my southernized eyes. gail

We in the North are so used to fall color — and we count on it as our right for having to put up with winter and snow — that I forget sometimes that it doesn't happen everywhere.

I giggled at the thought of you out there tapping on the ginko tree to see those bright yellow leaves spinning their way to the ground. Happy GBBD.

I am always so envious of fall color. Here in Southern Nevada, it seems like leaves go from green to on the ground. Thanks for sharing your beautiful photos!

I love all your fall colors! That is one thing that I do miss, living in Hawaii-we never really have a spring or a fall. (Not that I'm complaining).

I always thought ginkgos were the coolest trees, but I've never actually lived where there were any. Are they very messy-fruit, seeds, flowers, etc.?

Jan

Some fantastic autumn colours here!

HappyMouffetard

Absolutely beautiful autumn colours :-)

Thanks for all your comments! As for Ginkgo fruits, only the female trees fruit so you just have to be sure to buy a male tree and then there's no problem.

Fabulous pictures of the colour and form of leaves - no need for blooms! Thank you for visiting my blog - I only just found your comment. Such diversity in the gardening world - isn't it wonderful?!
