Its amazing how different this weekend is from last.
Fall colors in Orinda are mostly from landscape trees – where people planted trees that would give color.
Chinese pistachio trees are popular and have all of the fall colors in one tree
Because we have two Japanese maples that are at the end of their life – I planted two Nyssum Salvatica trees – or Tupelo. They are perfect for our area.
I planted the second one this morning and the hole was deep and a lot of work. This one has crimson and orange fall colors – the other one seems to be mostly crimson.
This Spring, Summer, and now Fall have been three seasons where I revamped our front yard and it looks great going into Fall and Winter.
