Fall color

japanese maple

The San Francisco Bay Area doesn’t have such a bad climate for fall color. The image above is of a Japanese maple; below is a Fuyu persimmon (both from my lot). But what we have is one of the world’s best climates for broad-leaf evergreens (you can see a lemon tree behind the persimmon), and as a result we tend to get specimen trees but never masses of color like these (photos taken near Ithaca, New York).

I like the color, and once I finish getting my backyard pool taken out I might plant a few more deciduous hardwoods.
