Fall Miniatures




Remember June when I took you on a tour of the fairy blooms in my yard? These plants do a wonderful show for fall as well.









This is the deep reds that our super miniature blueberries display come fall. These blueberries do not grow like a bush. They seem to spread across the ground.



Look closely at the above photo and you can see a little brown mushroom or two and extra special bonus old moose poop! What's a post from my yard without some kind of scat.



Our other blueberries grow more like bushes and have a more papery leaf that turns shades of gold, moving towards orange.







Isn't this lichen amazing? I do not know what kind of lichen this is, but it only gets this gorgeous orange in the fall.

Trixie, your second photo is what I want. I have a long & wide hill in my back yard that has only a few trees and blue rugs growing...I want COLOR next year like you are showing. I think I like Alaska. Everything looks so alive there, unlike here...

Oh. Mary. I love Alaska! It is very lush, even more so in other areas. However, the winter can be a bit wild.

The fall colors sure are standing out this year.
