Leaves of gold

Autumn has finally given us some colors!

My sweet Rowan with his golden leaves.

Amber Salix, swaying in the breeze.

And Twisty Hazel in honey colors.

I think we needed a bit of frost before the leaves decided to turn color. A lot of the trees have already dropped a lot of their leaves without turning yellow, or orange or red first.
I'd like a bit of red color, I might look around and see which trees are red these days around here.

Oh, Salix, I used to love my Rowan/Mountain Ash trees in Illinois... it's too hot for them in TX. Before we moved, one of my sons transplanted a seedling from our tree to his garden.

I didn't see any berries in this photo or in the October picture - is the tree too young to have flowers and berries?

My Rowan was only just planted earlier this year, in March, I think. It's a very young tree still, so I was not expecting any flowers or fruit yet. I'm hoping next spring, he will bloom a little bit.
