Red Foliage of New Jersey

Most all the leaves are now brown. Above is a multi-colored branch from East Jersey Olde Towne in Piscataway, taken two weeks ago.

My oak hydrangea (photographed last week) is even redder than it was a few weeks ago. What color.

For more photos with red, visit Ruby Tuesday:

It's so sad when the beautifully vibrant autumn leaves shrivel and fall off their branches. Ah, nature's cycle.

Your close-up photos are very pretty. Happy Ruby Tuesday!.

Never heard of oak hydrangea. Beautiful leaves though. Does it bloom as well?
My ordinary blue hydrangeas did not bloom until September, and there're still some flowers left.

You are of course right of Mid-winter being a light feast. Ancient celebration of the turning of the sun.
I do however embrace the fact that we are a religious, a spiritual people.

So many tries to drag us down to hollow commercialism.
I triumph every time reality out-beats the cynics.
Our seven lights in the windows are of course of Jewish origin.
I embrace that too.

If you click on the tag for hydrangea and scroll down, you can see the oak leaf hydrangea in bloom.
Or here's the direct link to the bloom:

The reds are fading as they await winter's cold. But they look nice if slightly washed out. Rubies they remain, and December seems to be the month that reds, any and all, are in style...

Those are excellent shots. I love the colours of Autumn, my favourite time of the year.

Happy Ruby Tuesday.

ramblingwoods says

We had a bit of snow last night and I think a storm in coming later in the week that might get you too. I am going to miss the fall foliage...Pretty photos... Michelle

Leora says

Oh, we'll probably just get cold rain. Too bad - I bet you would prefer the rain, and I prefer the snow.

Robin from Israel says

I really like that first shot. The red of the leaves stands out well against the paler background. Nice use of depth of field too.

Mar says

Those are both stunning! Did you see my foliage shot from yesterday? Suffice it to say that it fit the Mellow Yellow theme much better than Ruby Tuesday... :)

What beauties, Leora! I love the textures and contrasts. But, what I really enjoy looking at is the delicate look that you have captured in each one.
