I’m Really Hungry for More Fall Color! by The Elephant's Child

Just outside my second story window is a vine maple, and it sheds a few very yellow leaves every few minutes. Not done yet, but it’s clearly on the way to winter. Saw online today pictures of a small temple in the Japanese mountains surrounded with beautiful falling red leaves. We get lots of yellow, but no red leaves. I’m sure it would be different if I wandered over to our botanical garden, but late fall here is yellow, not red. Never been anywhere where the fall color is brilliant red, but I’ve seen lots of pictures. I remain abysmally ignorant of where one goes for really dramatic color. I always assume New England, but never been there.

Our fall color in Idaho was also yellow, in varying shades. Red was rare or non-existent. It was that small online Japanese temple that has made me so hungry for something at least a little more spectacular. !! I’ll have to go for a walk in the botanical garden. I don’t think I’ve ever gone out hunting for fall color before. It may be time. Seeing pictures online of other people’s fall color has me unjustifiably hungry for more.

I found this image online, and never been anywhere where the color was anything like this. That’s what I’m after, being able to go for a walk right there. The fallen leaves look maple shaped, but I don’t even know what else turns a spectacular color! It did not say where this photo was taken.

Good picture, but no location nor direction. We just don’t have that kind of color here..
