The optional theme for this week's Foto Finish is "Leaves". Here's my entry:
This is the fall color of a tree we planted down toward the lower end of our property. There are trees in Oregon that turn a gorgeous flame orange in fall, and we were on the hunt for one of those when we planted this tree. As you can see, only some of its leaves have changed...I'd say about half...and while this red is nice enough, I'm still hoping for that brilliant orange. This is the first year the tree has had much size, and so I'm hopeful that as its Autumn colors cover the whole tree, we may see that orange we are seeking. But, what the heck? If this red is the best it can do, then that isn't half bad either.
For next week's theme, I'm thinking we should go for that Autumn color: Orange
Now I'm ready to see your leaves. Here's Mr. Linky:
