Fall Color in the South: Alabama, Georgia, and South Carolina

Today we have three bloggers who have fall color to share!  All three reside in the south and have a wide array of color to show.  Those of us who live in the south enjoy the mild winters and long growing season which of course means the fall color lasts much later into the year.  As I look out into out back yard I can still see trees and shrubs holding tightly onto their leaves.  Soon to drop, but just not yet.  Let's take a look at what fall color looks like in some other southern states!

Fall Color in South Carolina


Janet in South Carolina has one of my favorite trees for fall color on display - the Sweetgum!  Liquidambar styraciflua has some of the most spectacular fall color.  A lot of people complain about them due to the gum balls which drop but that seems like such a small price to pay for such an array of fall color.  Janet also displays the fall colors of sassafras, hickories, and even some pink muhly grass - so go take a look and see what the Queen of Seaford has for fall color!




Fall Color in Alabama



When framing a fall color scene fences can really make the picture!  The rustic fence is a really color feature in photographs that highlight the countryside.  When you head to Alabama you come across many of those fences including one at My Life in the Farmlet.  Scroll back a few posts too and visit the winged sumac and other fall color on Pixilated2's blog!


Fall Color in Georgia



Speaking of sumac, Karin has a beautiful picture of sumac in her fall color post.  Japanese maples, hosta leaves fading, and dogwoods all bring the fall color down to Georgia in Karin's blog Southern Meadows. Stop by and see it all!
