Autumn with Minimal Red

I noted to my sister that autumn in Sheridan, Wyoming, although gorgeous, is lacking the red of other photos bloggers have posted.  She explained that maples don’t do well in Wyoming and that they account for much of the red in the fall landscape.  I have seen some bearberry and plum trees that give a small dash of purplish red.  I’ve been waiting for a fall prompt and Marilyn just sent me this one, so here are scenes I’ve witnessed in the week and a half I’ve been here:

About lifelessons

My blog, which started out to be about overcoming grief, quickly grew into a blog about celebrating life. I post daily: poems, photographs, essays or stories. I've lived in countries all around the globe but have finally come to rest in Mexico, where I've lived since 2001. My books may be found on Amazon in Kindle and print format, my art in local Ajijic galleries. Hope to see you at my blog.

    And yes, it IS the maples that add the red to autumn. We don’t have many maples on our property because the oaks are so tall, they make it too shady for the maples. But the yellow trees have done well this year and in a few weeks, the oaks will turn bronze.
