This Cercis canadensis is one of the most brightly-colored plants in my garden, at present. It's brilliant in the sun, but truly glows in the mornings and evenings. It's still a young tree, only 8-10 feet tall, but is still one of the largest deciduous trees in the garden. There are a few red alders out in the woods, and some bigleaf maples we planted down past the vegetable garden, but other than that, it's Douglas firs everywhere you look. So I appreciate any fall color.
Well, that turned into a bit of a tangent, didn't it? But I suppose that's the point of Wednesday Vignette, a photo that inspires or makes you think of something.
