Knittinggarden has totally neglected the gardening part of the blog for ages, due to the fact that the writer has totally neglected the garden in favor of knitting. Also, we had no summer here in Seattle so our growing season was a little pathetic. We recently had record rainfall and wind, so some of the beautiful fall color is on the ground, but today must be close to 70F and after a lovely bike ride, I decided to document a little of the colors around the yard. One year I was obsessed with the fall colors, and filled up a few blog entries with them, but not for awhile.
So, here are a few of the trees that I think are pretty this year, photographed in the shadows of late afternoon. Enjoy!
