Both of these kinds of leaves generally turn yellow in the fall. First is a sassafras that has turned red. I found this very surprising because they turn yellow almost without fail. You might remember I showed you a whole road edge of sassafras and I don't think there was a red leaf to be found. Nevertheless, this little rebel decided to be red!
The next one isn't quite so odd, but interesting even so. Like the sassafras, quaking aspen turns yellow, and quickly brown. You will see aspen trees that tend toward gold. These ones have gone just a bit farther toward orange.
The colors are almost gone... rain and wind are bringing them down.
