Fall Colors in Washington, DC


Usually we don’t get much of the fall colors in the Washington, DC area.  Either it rains too much and the colors are muddy, or it doesn’t rain enough, and the colors are dried out.  This year, the leaves have been spectacular.  My favorites have been the scarlet leaves, because the colors are so vivid.

A series of trees in blooms of scarlet red and pumpkin orange.
This tree hits all the glorious colors in nearby Glencaryln Park.

  1. Beautiful pictures, Linda. Fall’s my favorite time of year and we haven’t had much of one in the Smoky Mountains. Our summer was much too wet. 😦 I’ll live vicariously through your pics though. LOL.
