2012 Fall Photos
As usual in the fall of 2012 I went out looking for color, which this past fall was a bit of a problem. Exceptional drought, early freezes, and a double peak in color, and lots of very warm days, really kinda screwed things up this pasty season. What's more, time was more limited, and some locations I have previously gone were blocked. For those that are unaware, or have forgotten, I am located in the far Northwestern corner of Arkansas in USDA 6b.
This year I decided to wait until mid to late winter when things are generally quiet in this forum. It is my intent to post 1-3 pictures every day or two, instead of making mega posts. Mega posts take too much time, and all this would come to an end more quickly due to lack of quality pics. Anyone else that has something they consider posting is welcome to post in this thread. The more the merrier as far as I'm concerned. So with that said, here are the first post of this thread. Hope you enjoy.
A Blackgum tree, that was a complete mess when we got it, but is beginning to turn into a very nice tree. Much pruning lies ahead (and much has already been done for this season), but the color appears like it is going to be well worth it.
