Autumn's last blast of color

It seems like our autumn leaves are peaking right now, at least on the trees and grape vines around us. Prepare for a few days of local color.

I can never remember which leaves go with which grape variety.

Most of the grape vines out back turn yellow, orange, and gold in the fall. But here and there are vines that go red. Like this one. Brilliant!

We went to the building supply store yesterday to pick out the tile for the deck renovation. Ken had already found a candidate on line. We wanted to see it in person to be sure. It's pretty much the same as the tile we've had for the last eighteen years. Plus ça change...


  1. Gorgeous red! No matter variety it is. It would be ironic, though, if it were grapes to make white wine. Rosé?

    1. I was too fast, I meant to say gorgeous photo, too!

  2. That color is stunning. I’ll get most of my autumn color fix from you.

  3. The reds are my favorite, but would they be as lovely without the oranges and yellows? Glad you've found some tile, if you like it why change?

  4. how splendid! I love color so.

  5. chm, thanks! Sometimes I see red and gold leaves in the same parcel. I'm not sure it has to do with the color of the grapes, but I don't really know.

    mitch, I feel like a dealer...

    evelyn, the reds are a good accent color!

Pour your heart out! I'm listening.
