Today is Garden Bloggers’ Foliage Day, hosted by Christina at My Hesperides Garden.
This gives me a chance to share some photos of the changing colors of the foliage in my garden.
Heucherella ‘Sweet Tea’
Acer ‘Summer Glow
Aucuba ‘Mr. Goldstrike’
Hydrangea ‘Blushing Bride’
Crape myrtle ‘Osage’
Donna at Garden Walk Garden Talk recently asked me where all the color has gone. I hope, Donna, you will find this a reasonable answer.
Please visit Christina at My Hesperides Garden to see what she and others participating in this meme are sharing this day.

Very nice John! The Heuchera is lovely, very delicate it would look lovely on a vase I think. But the star must be your amazing Acer – what an incredible colour, it looks like the original burning bush. Thanks for sharing all these treasures with GBFD.
Thanks, Christina, for coming up with this meme. The red maple was a “foundling” in a ten dollar pot. It’s grown quite nicely into a showpiece.

Some nice features John. Heucherella ‘Sweet Tea’ is on my wish list, although most of my heucheras did poorly this year.
‘Sweet Tea’ was given to me by a garden center I frequent for trial. Except for the year of the rabbit, it has done quite well in the shade.
