late leaves, early buds

As we head into late November, there are fewer leaves still clinging to their branches. I do enjoy the splashes of color offered by these stubborn holdouts.

While I tend to think of buds as signs of spring, some shrubs form their buds in the fall. These colorful rhododendron leaves and buds caught my eye a few mornings ago as they caught some rays of the morning sun.

One thought on “late leaves, early buds

  1. I did not know that about rhododendrons!
    I love the light shining through the yellow leaves, but then, I do love yellow.
