The colors of autumn have very much faded in the last couple of days. Yesterday we had a big wind storm that blew most of the leaves off of the trees. But a couple of days ago my fruit garden was beautiful.
My dogwood, which I've raved about for other reasons was afire. The bright red fruit have long since been eaten by my squirrels. Now its show is all about the leaves. It might not rival a swamp maple for color, but still it has a lot of beauty.
The brightest of all in my fruit garden are my blueberries. I planted six of them along the driveway in the spring. They haven't grown to their full size yet, but they are certainly putting on a beautiful show with their bright reds. They are as showy as any ornamental. I can't wait to taste them next year.
