The frothergilla on the far left has turned reddish/orange.
Here you can see the color of the frothergilla and the sumac trees, as well as the newly painted brick on the house. The shutters need to go back up, and the trim needs to be painted.
We had hoped to have the front completely finished by Thanksgiving, but we had to drive to Nashville for a fencing tournament this past Saturday, and yesterday was rainy. Today has been very rainy also, with over 2 inches in the rain gauge since yesterday. So the garden has changed substantially again since just a few days ago. Almost all the leaves are gone now from the trees and bushes, and just a few of the purple berries remain. Leaves are inches deep on the ground, the sidewalks, the gutters. Fortresses made of bagged leaves barricade our neighbors' sidewalks -- 20, 30, 50 bags of leaves in front of each house! (not us, we mulch of course!)
